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 residents to have current Recreational ID card. Residents with a current Recreation ID card 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, as are the indoor swimming programs at Heights High. Residents use these facilities by first purchasing a Recreation ID card. ID cards are purchased at the Community Center and are valid for one year from the date of purchase and must be renewed each year.

The taxes cover the cost of paying for the facilities and their upkeep. The fees are necessary to cover the program costs - staff, materials, etc.
