Have not had the opportunity to visit for many years. Stopped in last September 2014 and found it challenging to visit for more then a few minutes. Maybe wrong time of the year. Probably much more interesting if a wedding would have been going on!

This is a beautiful location for photos of all kinds, and unfortunately. Everyone knows it. On nice days, you may be fighting numerous other photographers and clients for the same shot. Regardless, it's a nice place to visit and has a decent playground for younger children.

This is a terrific spot to visit in summer when roses in bloom. Weddings take place here but it can be a nice place to meditate or just walk around. Play area for kids.

This is a nice little park with rose gardens and ponds that have paths you can walk around. I've seen a few weddings there too. It is right next to a beautiful historic neighborhood (Forest Park, I think) We walk through there too. Just a nice relaxing place :)

Pretty in the summer, good play ground for children. Nice central location in Fort Wayne. Plenty of tables and benches for relaxing and watching the ducks

The park is small with the rose area, court areas, and a small pond. This is probably the smallest Fort Wayne park but the rose and flower areas extremely well taken care of and beautiful. However, if you do not go in the early morning then the traffic noise will over take the sceneries as people cruise to and from... More

lovely little park, but its covered in goose poop, on pair of pretty white swans would keep that "lake" clear of the geese and your sidewalks and grass would be much cleaner

When in season you will want to come here, many weddings are preformed here with the beauty of the park. On weekends parking can be of a challenge
