Fall into Fun with Tallmadge Parks & Recreation Department
We had a successful summer at Maca Pool and the Recreation Center. It felt so great to be back to some pre-pandemic normalcy. As the seasons change, we are excited to welcome more and more people back to the Recreation Center. We are back up to our full slate of fitness classes and are putting our a new Fall/Winter program guide! This is the first program guide we have published in almost 2 years. We are here to serve you, our community, and it feels amazing to be able to put together programs, leagues and events for all ages again! I hope you all take a moment to find something fun to do this fall. For more information on our operations and programs, join our email newsletter or follow our Facebook page for the latest updates.
