Planning for Strongsville’s Town Center Enhancement and Walkability Initiative is wrapping up on schedule, with construction expected to start in early 2023 on a series of new amenities in the area near the Ehrnfelt Rec Center, Mayor Tom Perciak said.
The project has expanded since it was first introduced early this year and now includes:
- An interactive fountain/splash pad with a stream running through it.
- Two playgrounds – one for 2- to 5-year-olds and one for kids 6 to 12 – that will be accessible by children of all ability levels.
- A community pavilion with fireplace that will be available for parties, gatherings and meetings.
- Four tennis courts and eight pickleball courts.
- Sand volleyball courts.
- A basketball half-court.
- A large green space that can be used for active recreation and for events like community band concerts.
- A food truck area with a shelter and picnic tables.
- New walkways that will connect the amenities.
- A roundabout that will replace the three-way stop at
Westwood, Zverina and Roe.
The architectural and design firm Brandstetter Carroll Inc. is drawing up the plans for the project.
