Foster Park includes a large garden, three historic outdoor pavilions, a playground, a baseball field, tennis courts and a replica of Abraham Lincoln’s native cottage. Foster Park is also home to the city’s first public golf course, built in 1927. A pedestrian bridge over the St. Mary’s River in 1928, designed by engineer A.K. Hofer, connects Foster Park and Indian Country Park. In recent years, Foster Park has been connected to the Greenway River along the St Mary’s River, St Joseph’s River, and the Maumee River.
