Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne
Fort Wayne and Chicago are often viewed as very dissimilar cities. To explore these differences, the Chapman Scholars of IPFW took a trip to Chicago from October 9th-11th. In Chicago, our group experienced differences and parallels in community, architecture, and lifestyle. In conjunction with this trip, we have also been exploring Fort Wayne and have made observations in these same areas. Through our examination, we have noticed that the parks of Fort Wayne and Chicago are viewed in very different ways and play varying roles. The decision to make parks the focus of our studies stemmed from our upbringing in Fort Wayne. Even though we were raised in Fort Wayne, neither of us knew much about the parks.
