Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation activities are positively Fort Wayne



FORT WAYNE, Indiana (WANE) – Spring is knocking on the door and the Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation Department is ready to kick off the season with activities to engage the community. One of them is a painting class. John Underwood has been attending classes for three years at the community center located at 233 West Main Street. “I’m getting used to it little by little,” he said. “I come here so much for the social aspect of it too. “

For those with more digital desires, there are classes to help people learn to browse the web. “Covid protocols are in effect, masks are worn and we have social distancing,” said community center manager Patti Davis. “We had to reduce the number of our classes due to social distancing, but there is a wide variety of classes. You can even learn Spanish.

Tap dancing is another activity offered by Parks and Recreation. It is for anyone 16 years of age and over. One class is specifically for those 55 and over. Linda Mullenhour is the instructor. “We meet on Mondays and Thursdays,” Mullenhour said. “We have a lot of fun. Sometimes some of our practices can be really difficult because tapping is not an easy thing to learn.

We have all kinds of dance classes, pottery classes, art classes, a whole new exercise program and we also have yoga, ”said Davis. “In addition, we have also added a virtual aspect. We even have people taking virtual classes from as far away as California. “

For those who prefer to be outside, there is a new outdoor gym. “The most important thing is that we have our outdoor exercise equipment in shape that we start in April,” said Davis. “Courses will also be organized there. “

Registration is required to participate in the activities offered by the Parks and Recreation Department and many are subject to charge. Click here for more information.
