Last splash: Final Fort Wayne city pool closing for season

Posted: Updated:
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA 21) -

The last operating Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department swimming pool is closing for the season.

The Northside Pool will be open Saturday until 5 p.m.

On Sunday afternoon -- in what has become an annual event -- the pool will be open to canines only (registration for that event is now closed). It will then be drained and secured until next spring.

Other pools closed a week earlier, and while all of the city's public pools will now be shut down for the year, splash pads will stay open until colder weather makes that impractical.

Splash pads are located at the following parks:

  • Franklin School Park:1903 Saint Marys Avenue. 9 am – 9 pm.
  • Buckner Park: 6114 Bass Road. 9 am – 9 pm.
  • McCormick Park: 2300 Raymond & Holly. 9 am – 9 pm.
  • Memorial Park: 2301 Maumee & Glasgow. 9 am – 9 pm.
  • Robert E. Meyers Park: Inside North Gate of Parkview Field on Jefferson Blvd. Open to public 9 am – 11 pm on days without scheduled events.
  • Shoaff Park: 6401 St. Joe Road. 9 am – 9 pm.
  • Kreager Park (Taylor’s Dream): 7225 North River Road. 9 am – 9 pm.
