FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)- The park board met Thursday morning to discuss proposed changes to Memorial Park.
Back in 2017, Indiana Tech proposed a partnership with the city of Fort Wayne to renovate the park. The public response put a halt to the partnership.
Thursday, the park board read proposed improvements, including restoring deteriorating monuments and repaving some trails to make the monuments more accessible.
The board also talked about changes to Memorial pool. While it is the smallest public pool in Fort Wayne, attendance has gone up in the past few years, according to board members.
They believe improving the pool would maintain the overall high attendance, and bring more children to the pool for swimming lessons.
The improvements to the park would cost around $700,000.
The board tabled the vote until their September meeting.
