I saw a great value the trail system can provide for the community in both wellness and economic development.
The trails are the connection to the community. You can get to and from friends, shopping , parks, schools and entertainment options all around Fort Wayne. The trails also take you thru many beautiful unseen corridors along our rivers and wooded areas providing for some incredibly peaceful places. The trails are an asset that will be here for all future generations to enjoy.
I put most of my miles on the trails on bike. My favorite an evening ride from downtown out one of the great trails and back followed by refreshments at one of the great restaurants downtown.
The trails have become a destination for people from Fort Wayne and all around. The growth of our system positions us to become one of the best networked trail system in the Midwest leading to improved community wellness and an asset that attracts new investment and talent to our community.
The trails are awesome spaces everyone can enjoy. Walk, run, bike, wheelchair, skateboard, roller-blade whatever means you have, get out and enjoy them.
