FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): Saturday afternoon, Fort Wayne residents and business leaders joined Mayor Tom Henry, City Councilman Glynn Hines and Parks & Recreation Director Al Moll for a ribbon cutting ceremony to dedicate the McMillen Park Community Center. The new and improved facility is a Legacy Fort Wayne Project.

 

The event showcased Phase 1 of the renovation, a $2 million project, with future phases to come.

  

“This is a great day for our community as we demonstrate a commitment to investing in the future,” said Mayor Henry. “Young people and adults will benefit from the tremendous opportunities and amenities that are available at the McMillen Park Community Center. I’m encouraged by the excitement of what the renovated facility means to residents and the surrounding neighborhoods. By working together we’re making a positive difference in Fort Wayne.” 

 

Summer hours for McMillen Park Community Center will be 6 am – 9 pm, Monday – Friday, and 12 – 5 pm, Saturday and Sunday. The Center will feature educational, social, and health and fitness programs for all ages, with a drop-in fee of only $1 per person for the walking track and open play sessions.

 

“The Parks & Recreation Department is proud and honored to be part of a project that began by gathering public input from both youth and community leaders,” said Director Moll. “Throughout the planning and renovation process, this project continued to gather community-wide support from Mayor Henry and City Council, to the public and private sectors. It has been an exciting and rewarding ride for all of us.”
