FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Fort Wayne officials unveiled the plans for phase II of Riverfront development Wednesday afternoon.

Phase II will include trails, a wetland boardwalk, an open-air pavilion, two new boat docks and park space. Also, another section of the canopy trail will be added.

It will run along the north side of the St. Marys River from Clinton Street to Harrison Street and from the Wells Street Bridge to Ewing Street. It will also include the south side of the river at the Ewing Street Bridge and along Superior Street with a streetscape to meet Promenade Park. Finally, this phase will add a section on the south side of the river between Harrison Street and Headwaters Park.

Phase II will cost approximately $25 million, with construction set to begin in late summer or early fall of 2022.


  1. Shut down and destroy businesses for the flu, then turn around and spend $25 million of taxpayers money on a river bank. Truly amazing times we live in.
