This notable accomplishment was announced at the Best of the Best Ceremony in Charlotte, North Carolina at the National Recreation and Park Association (NRPA) 2014 Congress and Exposition.

“The continued commitment to investing in our Parks is making a meaningful difference for residents and neighborhoods,” said Mayor Tom Henry. “To be recognized as a national leader in providing excellent Parks services is a tremendous honor. I’m encouraged by the unprecedented momentum we’re seeing in Fort Wayne, and I salute our entire Parks team for their efforts to enhance the quality of life that we enjoy in our City.”
