What's Going on Around Fort Wayne in April

Happy April! Looking out my window today as I’m writing this post, I’m excited to see how green the lawns are getting! Green lawns = growing lawns, and for most that also means mowing season. However, for our lucky residents of Montrose Square Apartments, we take care of the yard work which means more time for you to enjoy some of the great events going on around Fort Wayne this month!

Enjoy the Park

Living at Montrose Square Apartments means you’re within walking or biking distance to Shoaff Park. Walk or ride the trails, hit the greens at Shoaff Park Golf Course or enjoy a game of frisbee golf at the 18 hole disc golf course.

Easter Bone Hunt

Looking for something fun to do with your favorite furry friend? The annual Easter Bone Hunt will be held at Franke Park on Saturday, April 2nd. Bring your canine pal out to search for treat-filled Easter eggs, dog-friendly games, a photo with the Easter bunny and more!
