Through the years, these two organizations have worked hand in hand to preserve the City’s green spaces, create a lasting legacy for the citizens of Fort Wayne and Allen County, and provide free and affordable leisure opportunities for all ages.
Membership to the Park Foundation is open to all city and Allen County residents, 18 years of age or older.
