Alex and I rode part of the Fort Wayne Rivergreenway today. The St. Joseph River from the north meets the St. Marys River from the south to form the Maumee River in the heart of downtown Fort Wayne. The Fort Wayne Parks Department built the Rivergreenway paths along all three rivers in Fort Wayne.
Here's the north end just south of Johnny Appleseed Park.
This is a floodwall that was built along the St. Joseph River. The Rivergreenway follows along the top of the floodwall for many miles.
This is Historic Fort Wayne, a replica of the fifth and final fort at Fort Wayne. I worked here as a soldier in the summers of 1980 and '81 while I was in college.
Looking across the St. Joe River, Don Hall's Gas House (a restaurant) has a deck right on the river. The restaurant is located just north of where the original fifth fort was located, and is next to the location of a former basin on the Wabash and Erie Canal. The basin was essentially a parking lot for canal boats where goods were loaded and unloaded.
Across Spy Run Avenue from the fort, I took a photo of downtown.
The temperature got up into the low 80's today - a beautiful day to get out on the bikes.
