Wickliffe’s Seven City Parks
For a city of four square miles, Wickliffe hosts a spectacular seven city parks. Located conveniently around the City, 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). A listing of all the parks and the amenities they provide are listed below. Pavilions at the various parks may be reserved by residents by calling the Recreation Department or by emailing a permit found online at our City website.
2020 Pavilion Reservations
NEW FOR 2020 PAVILION RESERVATIONS – PLEASE READ THIS NOTICE
In an attempt to recoup some of the costs involved in maintaining and servicing the pavilions in our city, a $40 rental fee will be required for all pavilion reservations starting Wednesday, January 2, 2020.
The reservation process is still only available to Wickliffe residents. The fee to utilize the spray park and pavilion at Orlando Park will remain at $50. If use of the spray park is not needed, the rental fee for the pavilion will be $40. Rental fee is refundable with a one week notice by email to [email protected]. Your reservation entitles you to the use of the pavilion for the entire day. Bring in a current utility bill and driver’s license when reserving a pavilion to verify your Wickliffe residency. The Recreation Department can process your request by credit card, cash or check. Reservations will only be taken in person on January 2, 2020 at City Hall. Requests on-line or in person will continue on January 3, 2019. Payment secures your pavilion reservation. Residents may reserve the pavilions on holidays. If a reservation is not posted at a pavilion, use of the pavilion will be on a “first come, first served” basis.
