The Brunswick Recreation Center is having a big December as it celebrates its 30th anniversary


BRUNSWICK HILLS, Ohio — December is shaping up to be a big month at the Brunswick Community Recreation and Fitness Center as it celebrates its 30th anniversary.

At the City Council’s Parks and Recreation Committee meeting on Nov. 22, Parks and Recreation Director Taylor Petkovsek announced several events this month, including a Christmas drive-thru event from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. pm on Sunday, December 5, swimming with Santa on December 10. and a 30th Anniversary Tour Challenge throughout December.

Those who visit the center more than 25 times during the month will be entered into a raffle for free annual membership. For more information, visit or call the recreation center at 330-273-8000.

Petkovsek also announced the city’s receipt of a $61,040 grant to help fund a planned inclusive playground at Neura Park to serve both the general public and children with special needs. She noted that this is in addition to the city’s parks fund commitment to match fundraising efforts.

The project estimated at between $300,000 and $400,000 is a joint effort of the city and schools in the city of Brunswick. Petkovsek said she was unaware of the school district’s latest fundraising numbers at the time of the meeting.

The council was also made aware of the search for a new superintendent by the parks and recreation department. Petkovsek said the hope was to select the new superintendent by Dec. 6.

Pearl Road resurfacing begins

Also at the November 22 meeting, the city council approved a resolution authorizing the Ohio Department of Transportation to begin its Pearl Road resurfacing project in the city.

City Engineer Matt Jones said the estimated $6 million project will include extensive repairs to Pearl Road from Boston Road to just north of Sleepy Hollow Road.

“This legislation allows the city to enter into a contract that allows the project to be carried out by ODOT,” Jones said.

The Board also approved:

A one-year renewal of the city’s office supply contract with WB Mason, effective Jan. 1, 2022, through Dec. 31, 2022. City Manager Carl DeForest said the renewal includes a $6 increase per box for copy paper, for $32.99 per container, mainly due to supply chain issues.

A resolution to sell city supplies and equipment deemed obsolete or unfit for use through internet auctions in 2022.
