October 19, 2023 - Amidst staffing challenges, Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation will reopen the Jennings Recreation Center on Monday, October 23. This will effectively renew the after-school programming and Kids’ Café services at the center located at 1330 McCulloch Street.

Parents can register youth for the after-school program online at www.FortWayneParks.org.

“I’m happy to announce that Fort Wayne Parks and Recreation will reopen Jennings Recreation Center to provide a positive recreational place for youth in the East-Central neighborhood again,” says Director Steve McDaniel. He continues, “we continue to search for new Community Youth Center employees in order to reach optimal operational goals.”

Operations were temporarily suspended at Jennings and combined with Weisser Park Youth Center when summer seasonal staff returned to college and not enough new recreation coordinators were found for fall.

Interested applicants are encouraged to consider the full and part-time posted job descriptions available on the Parks’ website.
