Fort Wayne City Utilities has created a wetland area on the City's southeast side to store and treat stormwater runoff. Stormwater from several neighborhoods around McMillen Park goes to a massive storage tank at the park and is then pumped to the wetlands. The wetlands also provides a natural habitat for song birds, water birds and other animals.
During World War II, a portion of the property that is now a wetland was home to an Army training facility and later to a prisoner of war camp. Read more about the History of Camp Scott.
