Parks & Recreation:

From the desk of Cuyahoga Falls Parks and Recreation

Superintendent Darrell Lovelette;

Over the past two weeks I have had numerous conversations with longtime residents, newcomers and visitors to Cuyahoga Falls. In each of these conversations, I have walked away with a little more knowledge of our fine city and found out that no matter how long you have been in Cuyahoga Falls, there is a lot of information about the Parks and Recreation Department that you might not know. I thought I would share a few of these facts this week so leisure time opportunities are not missed this summer.

Cuyahoga Falls has 24 well-kept parks with some outstanding facilities and amenities to enjoy in a number of the parks. The facilities include the Arthur Hills-designed Brookledge Golf Club, the Natatorium, the Downview Sports Center and the Water Works Family Aquatic Center.

Facts you might not know:

Discount Pricing -- The facilities listed above (plus more) can be enjoyed at reduced admission costs through our Summerpac and Summerpac Plus programs. Call our office at 330-971-8225 for additional information.

Water Works Family Aquatic Center -- Yes, the water is heated so it stays constant no matter the air temperature. Is there any better place to enjoy numerous water slides, a lazy river, zero-entry pool, sand play area, lap pool and so much more?

Downview Sports Center -- Truly, a family oriented facility with something for everyone -- miniature golf, batting cages, driving range and a skate park. Discounts are offered.

Brookledge Golf Club -- This course is always in excellent condition and voted in 2007 as a favorite public course. Staff is very friendly. The golfing is great no matter your score.

The Natatorium -- This 116,000-square-foot community center was voted #1 Best Workout Place. If you don't know why, all you have to do is stop in to be greeted by both a friendly, customer oriented staff and wonderful amenities throughout the facility. It certainly is a facility to experience fully and repeatedly.

Falls River Cruise -- Yes, we run not one. but two pontoon boats on the river, seven days per week. The hour-long ride features a historical narrative of the river that I know you will enjoy and find most informative. Discounted tickets are included in the Summerpac program.
