Our mission is to provide people of all ages and ability the opportunity to participate in active and passive, individual and team, competitive and non-competitive programs. Through our community recreational and leisure activities, we strive to:
- Foster community spirit through friendship and teamwork.
- Teach the fundamentals of fitness, exercise and sport.
- Instill the concepts of pride, motivation and sportsmanship in all participants.
Our vision is to become a model for other recreation departments throughout Greater Cleveland and Ohio. We will do this by offering dynamic programs, using professionally certified instructors and providing progressive, state-of-the-art facilities, which will fully serve the needs of our citizens.
Our Award-Winning Facility
In August 2001 the Middleburg Heights Community Center was featured in USA Today as one example of upscale facilities that are redefining the concept of community recreation centers.
This came as no surprise to residents. After all, the center had already been named Most Outstanding New Center by the Ohio Parks & Recreation Association a few months after its May 2000 opening.
Today the center continues to provide the best in public recreation facilities. It includes:
The heated indoor pool features a pleasing free-form design with a lazy-current channel, bubble couch, vortex, hot tub/whirlpool spa, waterslide, and an area for lap swimming. A separate whirlpool, steam room and sauna are also available.
The heated outdoor pool includes a waterslide and a variety of other play features with areas no deeper than 3-1/2 ft. (perfect for little ones).
Our spacious fitness area has over 100 pieces of cardio, circuit training and free weight equipment. A four-lane, non-banked, 1/12 mile track offers a view of the pools, gymnasiums and casual activities area.
The casual activities area is a meeting place for everyone. With views to almost every activity area, it is the "hub" of the center. Features include a 60 ft. waterfall (which hides the elevator quite well), a grand staircase, and a skylight.
In addition to receiving the "Most Outstanding New Center" award in 2000, the Recreation Center also received awards from the Ohio Parks and Recreation Association for program innovation for the following:
- Adaptive Sports for Kids (A.S.K.)
A year round curriculum of sports and social activities for children with special needs
- Tot Sports for children 3 and 4 years old
- Bocce Ball leagues for children and adults
In 2001, Recreation Director Carl Guarnieri was selected as the "Outstanding Professional" in Recreation in the State of Ohio by
the Ohio Parks and Recreation Association.
The Community Center has also won the following awards:
- The "Golden Trowel" from the Masonry Institute in recognition of the "Community Center's Masonry Design and Construction."
- The Builders Exchange presented the center with four awards for the following:
- Skylights/Glass/Glazing and Curtain Walls
- Masonry and Brick Walls
- Stairs and Railing Systems
- Specialty Flooring
