*COVID-19 Updates* New COVID-19 CDC Guidelines will be effective on Monday, August 16, 2021 for the Civic Center and Rec Center as set forth in Mayor Matthew Burke's Announcement (which you can view on the News page as well as the Mayor's page).* We will continue to monitor recommendations from the CDC, Ohio Department of Health and Governor Mike Dewine during this public health crisis.

Parks & Recreation - Survey

The Recreation Department consists of an ice rink open from early September through Mid April, and a "heated outdoor" Swimming pool open from early June through Mid August. Programs we currently offer during the year: American Red Cross Swim Lessons, any/all Skating Lessons from beginner to Adult Municipal Figure Skating & beginner Hockey programs, Municipal Youth Travel Hockey, Fall Soccer, Indoor Soccer (Futsal), T-ball, Co-Ed Softball, Adult Fitness. We also have ball diamonds, play grounds, tennis courts and a skate board park in designated areas around the city. We are always looking for ways to improve/and or implement new programs. Your input on this survey will help us to move forward with some of our new ideas. Please keep your answers and comments simple, realistic and respectful. Also, please keep in mind even though we have staffing for all lessons by certified instructors, for our sports/special events etc. we rely heavily on volunteers/coaches etc. This facility was built in the 1960's and space is limited, as we do partner with the City Schools for use of ball diamonds, fields, gymnasiums etc.
