Spring has sprung at Bay Rec

Spring is officially here, and at the Bay Village Recreation Department that means one thing, getting ready for summer! Our summer program books went out a few weeks ago and we have been flooded with registrations galore! The unseasonably warm weather we had in March had us, as well as many Bay residents, even wishing we could open the pool early. But of course those days were followed by some cold ones, so we will all just have to wait until June…

Although summer has yet to arrive, it’s never too early to sign up for all those summer programs and pool memberships! For more information, check out our web site at www.cityofbayvillage.com and click on Parks and Recreation. Registration is available online or in person at the Recreation Department office.

Early Bird Pool Passes

You can save $10 if you buy your pool passes before May 15! All memberships must be purchased in person at the Recreation Department office.
