FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – At a public meeting Thursday evening, Fort Wayne residents gave input on how architects should proceed with the Foster Park Golf Course renovations.
The city wants to create a Master Plan for the course to make improvements leading up to its 100th anniversary in 2028. Ideas from the city could include adding a driving range, rerouting the course and fixing water drainage issues.
A big start in making that plan is getting feedback from the community. During Thursday’s meeting, the group that gathered for the meeting discussed different areas they wanted to change and upgrade the course.
“That’s the great thing about people in Fort Wayne, they’ve got that neighborhood park that they just love. And we heard a lot of great things about ‘we don’t want to see this change’ and ‘we don’t want to see this change’ or ‘we do want to see this change’ and that’s what we’re asking for. So we’re asking the public what it is and that frames the future for how we lay out the plans for Foster Park Golf Course,” said Parks and Recreation Director Steve McDaniel.
Another public input meeting will be held in Indian Village Park Pavilion May 19 at 6:00 p.m. The pavilion is located at 1701 Bluffton Rd.
