Planning for our Spring and Summer programs is going on now. Registration begins April 13th. Even though there are uncertainties about what we will be allowed to do May through August, we want to let you know what we have to offer and we need to know what you are interested in.

For only Five Dollars ($5) each, we will hold your space in any single program we offer. If the program proceeds as planned, you will receive a $5.00 credit and need only pay the balance before the program starts. If the program is cancelled or rescheduled your $5 remains as a household credit you or any member of your household can use at a later date.


Pickleball & Tennis Courts Re-Open May 18

The North Ridgeville Parks and Recreation Department will re-open all outdoor tennis and pickleball courts with restricted play rules on Monday, May 18.
Players are encouraged to practice social distancing minimums of at least 6 feet and follow specific rules and guidelines for play recommended by the United States Tennis Association and USA Pickleball Association.  We urge players to be respectful of others and make responsible choices while utilizing park courts.
The City continues to monitor the CDC, ODH and LCPH for guidance on re-opening additional park amenities.  Open greenspace, parks and trails continue to be accessible to the public at this time.  Please note that park goers may find limited access to public restrooms and water fountains.  Do not use parks or trails if you are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms.
This guidance is current as of today, but is a fluid and evolving situation changing by the day as incremental re-opening guidelines are released.
