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

Lots of great memories made here, and look forward to many more weddings, graduations, and other events to attend! We very... More

My husband and I got married here several years ago when all the flowers were in full bloom. Everywhere you go, you are surrounded by beautiful rose gardens and the smell is heavenly. Our photographer was able to take some beautiful pictures near the pond with a fountain in the background. There were also architectural and floral archways and garden... More

This place is beautiful in the spring and summer. We have had our pictures done there a few times. But watch out for some shady/questionable people walking by.

This is a nice park near downtown Fort Wayne. Some very nice flowers, fountains and walking areas. But the grass and sidewalks had a lot of old and new duck/geese droppings. I can't imagine running barefoot through this park! Limited parking except along the street.

We like to take people here who have not been to Fort Wayne before. It is such a pretty historic area of Fort Wayne, and it's nice that it's free to walk around and enjoy the lovely gardens.
