City Parks and Pavilions

Wickliffe’s Seven City Parks

For a city of four square miles, Wickliffe hosts a spectacular SEVEN CITY PARKS. The parks provide activities for residents of all ages. The City has two swimming pools (at Coulby and Jindra Parks) and a Splash Park (Orlando Park). Three of the parks were re-named after residents who perished in service to our country (Featherston, Intihar and Jindra Parks).  Linked to each park listed below you will find a Map with location for each park, their amenities and a printable “Request for Pavilion Permit”.  Pavilions at these various parks may be reserved by residents only by contacting the Recreation Department.

NEW PROCESS FOR 2021 PAVILION RESERVATIONS

2021 Pavilion Reservations are going virtual!  Due to COVID-19 restrictions and building closures, our pavilion reservation process will look different in 2021.  We will NOT hold in person reservations at the start of the new year.  Instead, we will ask Wickliffe residents to submit a request by email.  We will begin to accept emailed requests (one per family) beginning at NOON on Friday, January 1, 2021.  Click on the park below of your choice, then click on the pavilion form for that park. Fill out the form online, save it and then attach it to your request submission via email to [email protected].  Requests will be reviewed in the order that they are received to this email address.  Residency will be verified by Wickliffe address.  Send two alternate pavilion / dates in the body of your email so that we can try to accommodate your request in the event that your first request is unavailable.  Any emailed request received before Noon will be moved to the last request of this initial sign up period.  We will respond to your requests as soon as possible starting Monday, January 4.  Please do not call the office to obtain request status.  We will respond via submitted email address.

The Recreation Department can process your payment by phone or in person by credit card, cash or check made out to City of Wickliffe.  A $40 rental fee is required for all pavilion reservations.  Payment secures your reservation.  Use of the Orlando Spray Park will require a $50 fee or a per guest fee. Your reservation entitles use of the pavilion for the entire day.  Please check appropriate time designation box on request form. Pavilions are available at Coulby Park (Pond and Pool), Jindra Park, Levi Lane Park and Orlando Park (Main and Shelter).  Rental fee is refundable with a one week notice in writing.  Pavilion usage is on a “first come, first serve” basis in the absence of a confirmed reservation.

Access to the Recreation Department at City Hall is very limited at this time.  Face masks and social distancing are required during any visit.

Dogs in City Parks

Dogs shall be restrained on a leash in such a manner as to be under a person’s control at all times. Dogs only will be permitted in the park areas designated as a park walkway, path or sidewalk. No person shall permit any dog to run at large. Parks with walking paths include Jindra, Orlando and Intihar Parks. Dogs are not permitted in open grassy areas, in park pavilions or at the ball fields. Owners are responsible for cleaning up their dog’s droppings in the park. (Ord. 2008-08, 4/14/2008)

Bicycles in Parks

Wickliffe City Council has removed the park rule that banned bicycles from City parks. Bicycles are now allowed in Wickliffe parks, and riders are asked to be courteous to walkers and others enjoying the park on foot.
