Cleveland Heights residents have the priority use of our parks and facilities. Non-residents have limited access. Our outdoor parks and playgrounds are open to the general public (residents and non-residents). The facilities within the parks i.e. picnic shelter, tennis courts, basketball courts, ballfields and Multi-sports fields and the skate park require residency. Residents can bring guests, but the number is limited and depends on the facility and usage. Our Community Center was built and is supported by taxes paid by residents and is primarily for use by residents. Some programs are open to the non residents as well, with a higher rate structure. Our outdoor Cumberland Pool is open to Cleveland Heights residents only, with a limited guest policy.
Cleveland Heights residents are welcome to use South Euclid's Dog Park in their Quarry park. For more information please visit the South Euclid Fido website.
Each City is responsible for the construction, maintenance, and usage policies for its portion of the Park, and bears the costs thereof. The Cities are entitled to limit usage to those whose taxes fund those facilities.
The City facilities are supported by income taxes and tax levy payments by Cleveland Heights residents only. The property taxes support the school system and not the individual Cities of Cleveland Heights or University Heights.
