Parks & Recreation

Shadyside Park on the Broadway side will not have water or restrooms availability all day today, Thursday, 5/5//16 due to a water valve repair. Everything will be up and running by Friday morning. Thank you for your cooperation. -Parks Maintenance Staff.  

We are very excited to announce that on Wednesday, June 29th, the Parks Department will Charter a bus to the Reds v. Cubs game! Sign-Ups will begin on Monday, April 18th at the Parks Office (1611 Chase Street). $50, will cover your ticket and a seat on the charted bus!

This is a day game (12:35PM first pitch) and our seats will be field level, third base side.

We only have 54 spots, this will sell out quick!

The only question I have for you is, will we be filling the bus with Cubs Fans or Reds Fans??
