What's Happening in February

Wait until you see what we have in store for 2011! The Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation Department has a mission to be stewards of our parklands and facilities, but we also have a mission to provide leisure activities to the public. We take that mission very seriously, and as a result, we’re serving up another year of fun, low-cost (and often FREE) family-friendly entertainment.

Check out the Peter Pan Exhibit at the Botanical Conservatory,
1100 S. Calhoun Street
Join Peter as he whisks Wendy, John and Michael Darling away to Neverland. There they meet Peter's loyal Lost Boys and the tiny fairy Tinker Bell, have adventures with the Indian princess Tiger Lily, and battle the evil Captain Hook. Explore the Lost Boys' camp, the Indian Tribe's village, and the Pirates' ship--a sort of playground in the midst of the winter gardens. Watch out for the Croc! And join us for Peter Pan Day, Saturday, February 5, 10 am - . Put a happy thought in your heart and search for Peter Pan's shadow, join Captain Hook's crew, get a tattoo, make an edible fairy wand covered in pixie dust, and play Lost Boy Games. Dress like a fairy, pirate, Peter Pan, or wear your pajamas. Take your picture with the nefarious inhabitants of Neverland. Have a little faith, get some pixie dust, and head for the first glass house where there's fun for the entire family! Pirate drinks and refreshments will be available for purchase! Conservatory admission is only $5 for adults, $3 for children 3 - 17 and ages 2 and under are free.

While you’re visiting the Conservatory, stop in for a deli sandwich, handrolled bagels, mouth watering desserts, soups, salads and more at the new cafĂ©—The Bagel Station Uptown. You won’t be disappointed. Open Tuesday – Friday, (Thursday until ); Saturday, and Sunday .

Did you know if you’re 50 years or older you can join drop-in activities for just $1 at the Community Center Monday – Friday? You can play pool, ping pong, crochet, Wii, billiards, Mah Jongg, cornhole, or even join in on an exercise class. The Community Center is located downtown at
233 W. Main Street.

If the gloom of winter is getting you down, sign up for a class to lift your spirits. We offer sports, crafts and self improvement classes for all ages and the prices are very reasonable. Check out the Winter Fun Times at to see what catches your eye.
The Spring Fun Times will be available on February 10.

Have fun!
