Resident Cardholder Information

The North Olmsted Parks and Recreation Department implemented a new facility management system.  This system allows us to process resident cards, registrations, passes and daily fees in a more timely, efficient and user friendly manner.

All residents will be required to obtain a new resident card at the cost of $1.00.  This card must be updated yearly.

To obtain a resident card, you must show proof of residence in the form of a current utility bill, tax statement, motor vehicle registration or rental agreement.

All non-cardholders and non-card carriers will be charged the full registration fee or admission price.

North Olmsted Recreation Center Renovation Update #2      August 1, 2014


As many of you already know, we are in the process of renovating our facility to include a Fitness area, multipurpose rooms, a user friendly lobby area, a child care room and expansion of our locker rooms in both the pool and ice rink. The Fitness Area will be located on the newly remodeled second floor of the recreation center.  This area will feature designated spaces for stretching, cardio equipment, selectorized weight equipment and free weights.  Our equipment will include top brands such as Cybex Treadmills and Bikes, Octane Ellipticals, Concept 2 Rowers and Stairmaster Stepmills.  The cardio space will now look out over our indoor pool.   If weight training is more your kind of workout, we will offer Hoist Selectorized and plate-loaded machines along with Troy Barbell and Fitness plates and dumbbell equipment that  allow patrons young and old to exercise at their own pace. 

Our goal is to create an environment that will better suit the needs of our community, guests and organizations by providing opportunities for memorable recreational experiences that promote health, socialization and sportsmanship through enhanced quality programs.  We plan to achieve these goals through several other facility upgrades such as, expanding our multipurpose and exercise rooms and promote more fitness related classes.  An area specifically made for children for socialization while mom or dad enjoys a yoga class or a session with a personal trainer.  We are increasing our locker room areas within the ice rinks, family changing rooms and pool locker rooms to create more space for our growing environment. 

Additionally, we will be offering more health promoting programming.  Memberships are on sale now.  You can purchase annual memberships with your start date commencing the first day we open the fitness area doors.  Stay tuned and get ready to get fit.  We are extremely excited to open our doors and encourage healthy lifestyles.  It is not always easy to get the ball rolling, but together, as a community, we can accomplish many goals.   Our renovation is just the beginning.
