WELCOME TO WAYNEDALE!
Nestled in Southern Fort Wayne, our “Neighborly Community” is celebrated as one of the best places to live and work in Northeast Indiana. Walking down the streets of our quiet neighborhoods or visiting one of our many family owned businesses, we see our neighbors, families and friends who offer a welcoming wave as they greet us. Our kind traditions certainly makes Waynedale feel like home.
Our hometown residents gather for our annual Community Picnic, Memorial Day Parade, Taste of Waynedale and more. You can feel the excitement as everyone seems to have a little more pep in their step in anticipation of each community event. People come from all over Indiana to see and participate in our community activities that continue to grow in attendance from year to year.
Waynedale has many unique qualities that make it different from any other place in the world, but the most interesting aspect is tradition. Waynedale was named and founded in 1921, until it was annexed into Fort Wayne in 1957. But as Waynedalers love to keep tradition, fifty-five years later, most still refer to the area as Waynedale than Fort Wayne.
Also kept in tradition are our multi-generational family-owned businesses, who have continued to do business in Waynedale since their start. The community businesses structure is self-sufficient, providing literally everything the average citizen needs. As many of our businesses are within walking distance of our residential neighborhoods, most people don’t have to travel far to find what they need, right here in Waynedale.
Our 2012 Waynedale.com Visitors Guide showcases the many great features that Waynedale has to offer. Within these pages you will find our map, community history, resident resources, local schools & churches, featured “hot-spots” and activities, as well as a directory of Waynedale businesses. It has been diligently created through the efforts of Waynedale.com volunteers. Be sure to mention that you found any business or organization in the Visitors Guide when you use their services or purchase products. This will help us continue the second annual Waynedale.com Visitors Guide next year.
