Foster Park reopens after flooding

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Foster Park has reopened after the city’s parks department closed it last week due to flooding.

The City of Fort Wayne’s Parks and Recreation Department said early Monday that the park and the Foster Park Golf Course have both reopened. The department closed the park Friday afternoon after more than 4 inches of rain fell on Fort Wayne nine of the previous 10 days.

Foster Park, which hugs the St. Marys River, commonly sees flooding during heavy rain events. It was closed for several days during heavy seasonal rains in 2015.
