2019 Trail Projects

The City of Fort Wayne’s Greenways began as part of the Parks and Recreation Division. From 1975 to 2005 the Parks Division built the 20 mile Rivergreenway. In 2005, the current City Greenways and Trails Department moved to the Public Works Division, a fitting move as the community’s view of trails shifted from recreation to active transportation.

The move helped the City increase its trail miles from 20 miles in 2005 to 81 miles at the end of 2017. The City designed and constructed 63 of those 81 miles in the City's trail network.  An additional 18 miles were built in the City limits by the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), Allen County, Aboite New Trails, housing developers, medical facilities and universities. The trail network outside the City of Fort Wayne limits includes another 26.5 miles.
