The City of Sheffield Lake’s 10 beautiful parks are maintained and operated under the guide of the City of Sheffield Lake Park Board, in an effort to give the citizens of Sheffield Lake outdoor areas to enjoy with friends and family. The Board functions as a decision making body, created by the city charter.
One part-time employee supports the goals of the parks in various needs and performs day-to-day operations, and the Park Board currently sponsors the City’s recreation events.
Paying close attention to the use and development of the park system, and utilizing our greatest resource, the south shore of Lake Erie allows the Department to offer programs and activities to residents that greatly enhance the community. Together with an understanding of the region, the Sheffield Lake Park board strives to bring this resource and its benefits, not only to the people of our community, but also to the surrounding communities.
Following an adopted master plan for further enhancing the city’s resources, the Department has developed a Boat Launch and chartered a process to redevelop our central commercial lakefront district with multi-use bicycle/pedestrian trails and routes intermingling throughout the city’s parks, lakefront, points of interest and local destinations.
The Park Board, City Council and Administration openly employ a policy of exploring joint cooperation with other political subdivions, in an effort to make The City of Sheffield Lake a doorway to Lake Erie – Ohio’s greatest natural resource.
