Parks and Recreation

Grove City Parks and Recreation offers hundreds of classes, programs and events for all ages and maintains three signature parks, a destination garden, a senior center, a family water park, a state-of-the-art skate park, eight playgrounds and numerous ball fields and bike paths.

Additionally, a variety of adult and youth sports, a before- and after-school childcare program (P.A.R.K.) and a preschool (RecSchool) exist to benefit the community.

The department works in coordination with the Grove City Division of Police, the Jackson Township Division of Fire and the Grove City Community Relations Office to produce a full slate of community events such as the Grove City Independence Day Celebration; and the Grove City Christmas Celebration.

Parks and Recreation has an ongoing commitment to acquire and develop public green spaces and expand recreational programming.
