There are so many new things to discover in Fort Wayne this summer! Here are a few items for your summer bucket list:

Check out what’s new at the zoo

The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo offers two new exhibits for capuchin monkeys and river otters in 2019, in addition to their rides and activities in every part of the zoo. It’s no wonder it’s been named one of the top 10 zoos for kids!

The butterflies are back

Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory is once again hosting the butterfly exhibit. Walk among these beauties (and maybe even let one land on your finger!).

Explore the trails

Discover the great outdoors along Fort Wayne’s more than 100 miles of trails, kayak and canoe trails or Fort Wayne’s 86 parks.

Catch a game

TinCaps Baseball has been named the “#1 Fan Experience in Minor League Sports,” and features an awesome downtown ballpark, great family fun, food, and tickets starting at $6!

Learn something new

Science Central is home to Science on a Sphere — a three-dimensional globe that teaches earth and space systems in a whole new dimension! It’s just one of the amazing exhibits at our hands-on science center.

Mark your calendar

Fort Wayne’s three rivers meet at Promenade Park, where families can enjoy river access, a Treetop Canopy Trail, food, and fun! The brand new park, adjacent to the Historic Wells Street Bridge, is scheduled to open in August.
