Camp Scott Wetlands

Fort Wayne City Utilities has created a wetland area on the City’s southeast side to store and treat stormwater runoff, located at 3615 Oxford Street. Stormwater from several neighborhoods around McMillen Park goes to a massive storage tank at the park and is then pumped to the wetlands. The wetlands also provides a natural habitat for song birds, water birds and other animals.

Fort Wayne provides tours of the wetlands by appointment. Contact the site manager to arrange a tour for your group by calling 311.

During World War II, a portion of the property that is now a wetland was home to an Army training facility and later to a prisoner of war camp.
