Salomon Farm Park

Salomon Farm Park We are a public city park that is also a working farm! We are open daily, 6a.m. -11p.m. Free. The Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department entered the “farming business” in 1995 when Chris Salomon and his daughter, Lynn, presented the Department with a very generous gift -- the family farm.

Located on the north side of Fort Wayne in an area of rapid development, the 170-acre park provides not only much needed green space, but a glimpse of life on the farm, as
well. In keeping with the Salomons’ wishes, the park remains a working farm. When complete, the park will feature demonstration plots utilizing farming methods popular in the 1930s. Period equipment
is being obtained for authent

Calling all animal loving teens!

For our monthly animal care teens program, we are taking a field trip to Solomon Farm Park and we still have some openings! This will take place Saturday, May 7 from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at 817 W Dupont Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46825. We will be meeting there, not at the shelter.

Our host at the farm will talk a little about the history of the farm and take us to the three different animal areas to talk about the farm animals and how they care for them. We will also get to spend time with the animals and provide lettuce to give to them. In addition, we will help them out by doing some cleaning so wear clothes you don't mind getting dirty!

Don't miss out on this fun experience! You can sign up today on our website: https://www.cityoffortwayne.org/education/animal-care-teens.html
