June 23, 2023 - Mayor Tom Henry will join the City of Fort Wayne’s Community Development Division, the Parks and Recreation Department, and City Councilwoman Sharon Tucker to celebrate the grand opening of McKinnie Commons Park.

The event will be held Wednesday, June 28th, at 5:30 p.m. at McKinnie Commons, 1815 McKinnie Ave., at the northeast corner of McKinnie and South Anthony Boulevard. Refreshments will be available while supplies last.

In 2019, the Community Development Division and the Southeast Area Partnership worked with residents in southeast Fort Wayne to develop the Southeast Strategy Update, which focuses on reinvesting in the southeast quadrant.

McKinnie Commons was highlighted in the Update under Public Spaces & Interconnectivity.

The newly constructed gathering space offers a bandshell for entertainment, space for food trucks and pop-up vendors, outdoor dining areas, bike racks, large swings, and many other amenities.
