If you’re out hiking, biking or walking the Rivergreenway and you get tired with the city’s water filtration plant looming in the distance, you’re now in luck.
The 2013 Leadership Fort Wayne Project Team presented a new rest node to the city Tuesday morning.
The node is directly in front of the filtration plant on Spy Run Avenue, and it provides benches, an IPFW sculpture bike rack and a drinking fountain.
The water at the structure, the city made sure to note, can be used for people or their canine friends and companions.
Matthew Wirtz, City Utilities deputy director, along with Kim Fuhrmann, Shawna Squibb, Kim Sabrosky and Chad Tranter helped create the node as members of the Leadership Fort Wayne Project Team.
The sculpture, titled “Flow,” was created by Alec Johnson, who was a superintendent of park planning, landscape and horticulture for the city parks.
It was designed with the idea that the river is part of the trail system and essential to the welfare of the community.
Other donors consisting of businesses and individuals provided the funds for the node, according to Leadership Fort Wayne.
