Just a few steps from downtown Fort Wayne, Headwaters Park is an oasis in the city's urban core.  The park is located at and celebrates the joining of the St. Mary’s River and the St. Joe River to form the Maumee River that eventually flows into Lake Erie.  The park has plenty of pathways allowing for quiet contemplation for parkgoers who want to walk around the park undisturbed.  There is a mixture of wooded, open, and spaces with shrubbery.  Many of the trails in Fort Wayne meet in Headwaters Park, and the site is the location for many festivals in town.  Headwaters Park is an excellent centerpiece for trails in Fort Wayne.
