While driving around looking for garage sales this weekend I happened upon the above park which is behind the businesses in Gateway Plaza (on Goshen Road) that I didn’t even know existed.

In looking up on Fort Wayne Parks Dept. website, it is at the corner of Trinity and Cambridge, is 5.9 acres.  

It was had been vacant lot that was purchased and donated in 1981 by Jack Gren, a man who had grown up in the area and played on the vacant lot that was there as a child.  

I found it sad that it is a sunny day and there were no childen in the park, but going to keep the spot in mind to have a picnic this Summer (if the lone table under the shelter is free).
