Fort Wayne Parks & Recreation Holiday Gift Ideas
If you’d like to give an unusual gift this holiday season, or you’d just like to avoid the crowds, consider a Parks & Recreation gift card, or visit one of our unique shops.
Parks & Recreation gift cards can be used for program registration fees, concert tickets, greens fees, golf memberships and Botanical Conservatory admission and memberships. You choose the amount. Stop by the Parks Administrative Office at 705 E. State Blvd. or call 427-6000 to purchase by phone. Download the Winter Fun Times at www.fortwayneparks.org for more information, and to get a complete list of programs for all ages.
Tulip Tree Gift Shop
Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun St.
Visit our gift shop for a beautiful selection of vibrant poinsettias as well as unique, botanically-inspired books, toys, t-shirts, music CDs, cards, original art and more. The new outside Sales Garden is featuring fresh cut, locally produced wreaths in 3 sizes and a selection of concrete garden accents. While shopping, be sure to visit the Bagel Station Café for a tasty treat.
Give a Zoo Membership for the holidays—it’s the gift that gives all year long! The whole family can enjoy unlimited free admission to the zoo, discounted admission to more than 150 zoos nationwide, a free summer picnic, coupons, and exclusive members-only opportunities. Or “Adopt” a red panda at the zoo as a holiday gift – you’ll get a plush red panda to put under the tree and your adoption fee will provide professional care for one year. Purchase online at kidszoo.org or call 427-6827 weekdays to order by phone.
Ye Olde Gift Shoppe

Another great gift idea for someone 55 or older: The Community Center has a foot care clinic which includes foot soaking, nail trimming, lotion massage and callus shaving for $25.
