I thought Spring would never get here but I believe we are finally done with that wet, cold stuff and the "lazy, hazy days of summer" are on their way! School will soon be out and Maca Pool opens on May 28th. Discounted memberships are still available until May 15th, so sign your family up before then and save some money!
On Monday, May 16th the North Avenue construction project will swing into high gear closing the road to all south-bound traffic for the duration of the project, a projected 200 days. Detour signs will be set up directing traffic where to best avoid the construction and a map with the detours noted can be seen on this website as well as featured in the Tallmadge Express. We beg your indulgence in this very important improvement project.
Our summer recreation program begins Sunday, May 22nd with our very successful "Food Truck Festival" at TRC from 11 to 3 and then on Saturday, June 18th from 10 to 12 with "Touch A Truck" - kids of all ages love this one! "Music On The Circle" begins on consecutive Saturdays at 6:30 beginning July 9th and ending August 6th, and plan on bringing blankets and popcorn to "Movies At The Rec" held on 3 Sundays, June 26th, July 24th and August 7th at 7 inside TRC. Add these special dates to our summer camp programs, tennis, golf, soccer and swim lessons and all the youth and adult leagues and you can see how busy our TRC summer crews will be!
It probably seems to you that we have some kind of building project going on in every section of the city. Whether it be the 2 new residential housing projects, the Danbury senior facility on East Avenue and the Testa project on North, or the new restaurants and businesses coming to town, we are pleased with the progress we are making and proud to be a city on the move! I encourage you to take advantage of TRC programs and don't forget to take your family for a spin on our bike trails that begin at the trailhead at Middlebury Road and Northeast Avenue and continue all the way to Eastwood Avenue in Akron! Have a fun and safe summer!
