A new parks and recreation management software is now in place that will make
the registration process easier and allows us to take credit card payments.
You will need to create a new account to register for programs. If you have registered online before, you will need to click “I would like to change my password”. You will then be sent an email to change your password and you are all set to register! When registering online, you
must pay by credit card (there will be a service charge for credit card payments). You
can also use the kiosk in the lobby of City Hall to register for our programs. All free
programs will be registered through this site as well.

Click to register or just check it out! 

If you do not want to register with credit card you may download a printable
registration form that you can then mail with a check or money order to City Hall, or
come to City Hall with check, money order or the exact amount in cash (we don’t have
change onsite).

You will also be able to access a calendar by choosing the “Register” tab and clicking on
“Reserve Park or Facility” to see the availability of the Fairlawn Kiwanis Community
Center, Parks and Soccer Fields.

If you have any questions when using the new website,
please contact us at 330-668-9515 or

The Fairlawn Community Foundation, the Fairlawn Area Chamber of Commerce and the City of Fairlawn are proud to announce that this year’s Independence Day activities will be held on Monday, July 4, 2016.  The parade will step off from St. Hilary’s parking lot at 4:30 pm, head west on W. Market Street and conclude in the 3320 W. Market Street parking lot (directly across from Summit Mall).  Beginning at 5:00 pm, food trucks will be serving at Bicentennial Park. The Mick & Rick band will perform in the park from 5:45 – 7:45, followed by a two hour performance by the Brass Band of the Western Reserve beginning at 8:00 pm.  The fireworks display will begin around 10:00 pm.  The Fairlawn City Women’s Club will be selling beverages throughout the evening.

The Peterman Bus Company will be running free shuttles to and from Summit Mall to Bicentennial Park to ease parking and traffic congestion.  The shuttle may be picked up beginning at 6:30 p.m. The location will be determined closer to the event.
