ACRES Land Trust Preserves

ACRES Land Trust is a local organization that works to maintain local working land and natural areas, and manages properties throughout northeast Indiana and has 70-plus miles of trails that are perfect spots to see wildflowers. The preserves feature bogs and creeks, trees and bushes and some of the area’s most beautiful places to see spring, well, spring.

Among the favorite areas to look include Bicentennial Woods, 340 E. Shoaff Road. At Bicentennial woods visitors can see towering oaks, hickories and sycamores, some more than 200 years old. Spring wildflowers include wild blue phlox, wild geranium, bloodroot, Jack-in-the-pulpit and a variety of trillium.

Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo

While the keepers are busy caring for animals, the horticulture department at the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo is busy making the grounds an inviting place for the children and the adults who bring them. Visitors are greeted with displays from the moment they arrive with flowers offering a backdrop to your photo on the Z-O-O letters. The landscape features hundreds and hundreds of annuals that are planted each year, along with the beds that complement the exhibit. The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo opens for the season on April 27.

Downtown Fort Wayne

From parks filled with colorful blooms to imposing planters with colorful annuals, the city’s center is filled with flowers. Take a casual stroll during your lunch break or make a purposeful trip to see the different flowers. Stop by Freimann Square where beds of blooms are complemented by the park’s pool and the public displays at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.

Foster Park

Each year, what seems like a sea of tulips blooms from the beds at Foster Park. While the entrance of the park is under construction, there will still be opportunities to see the color show.
