Thomas Moran, Director
"My philosophy is that all residents of Parma Heights should have full access to the city’s parks and recreational activities, whether it is T-ball for girls and boys or a public garden for the community’s adults to enjoy. The Parma Heights Pool has become a place of refuge on hot summer days for Parma Heights residents and for people in surrounding communities because of its sterling reputation. All residents are welcomed and encouraged to participate in the various opportunities the Parma Heights Recreation Department offers."
