New Year, New You with Tallmadge Parks & Recreation Department


It's time to make a commitment to being a better version of you this year! While we like to focus on better physical versions of ourselves through diet and exercise, there are many other ways to improve yourself that do not involve counting calories and killing yourself on machines. 

You can expand your skills and knowledge by taking a class you've never tried before, such as painting or theater

Family Enjoying Kids Soccer Game

You can also resolve to have more fun with your friends by coming to open gym volleyball or basketball or by joining one of our many sports leagues. We also have events for all ages so you can spend more quality time with your family this year.

Another great resolution is to spend more time in the parks. There is a lot of research out there demonstrating how spending time outdoors can boost your mood and give you a more positive outlook on life.

And for those of you who want to improve your physical well-being this year, we welcome you to join our facility. We will be purchasing all new treadmills this year to replace the ones that have been in our fitness area since we opened. We also recently purchased new weight equipment on the strength side of the fitness floor. Fitness classes for all interests and fitness levels and our Four Corners of Fitness circuit help round out our fitness offerings. New members who haven't been here in over a year or have never been here can try the Rec Center FREE for 7 days, so what are you waiting for? Come in, try a little bit of everything and find something that works for you. Together, we can make 2017 your best year yet!

Important Concussion Information


Ohio's "Return to Play" Bill goes into effect April 26, 2013. The bill is designed to increase concussion awareness and recognition in parents, coaches, and officials in youth sports programs. All Tallmadge Recreation Department coaches and youth sports leaders will be certified in concussion awareness and recognition. View the Concussion Information for Parents (PDF).

Together, we can help protect children from more serious concussion-related problems!
