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 center serving the older population, a family water park, a skate park, an off-leash dog park, numerous playgrounds and 19 ball fields and miles of multi-use recreational 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 Summer Sizzle Concert Series, Fryer Flicks on the Hill Outdoor Movie Series, Grove City Independence Day Celebration, EcoFest and the Grove City Christmas Celebration.

Parks and Recreation has an ongoing commitment to acquire public green spaces for active and passive use and expand programming for all ages and abilities.

The Grove City Parks and Recreation Department is one of 183 departments nationwide and eight in Ohio to hold full accreditation from the National Recreation and Parks Association.

Residency Rates & Fair Share Policy

This does not include all of ZIP code 43123; ZIP codes are used by the U.S. Postal Service to designate the office that delivers mail to an address. Visit Franklin County Auditor’s website to check your address. Grove City parcel IDs start with 040; unincorporated Jackson Township with 160.

Through the City of Grove City Fair Share Policy, non-residents who pay income tax to the City of Grove City are eligible to participate at resident rates. To be eligible, non-residents must annually provide proof of employment on company letterhead with the signature of the personnel director or a current pay stub showing the employer’s address.
