A new rest area was unveiled in Downtown Fort Wayne located right across from the Old Fort and along the River Greenway system.

The rest area is equipped with benches and a spot to park your bikes.

City Officials say it's a place for citizens to take a break and simply have a place where they can enjoy a view of Downtown.

Matthew Wirtz, Deputy Director of Fort Wayne City Utilities says, "It's a place for them to also enjoy clean water.  We have a drinking water fountain that people can get a drink which there's not many of them along the Greenway system right now."

The rest area also has a sculpture installed with the three large holes which is actually supposed to represent our three rivers.
