New Park & Play Program Brings Fun

Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation announced a new mobile recreation unit called Park & Play that will bring free fun to neighborhood parks through July 28.

Park & Play staff will bring fun and games for youth ages 5 and up. Morning and afternoon sessions will include a selection of sports, games, arts and crafts, fitness, nature and outdoor educational activities.
