COVID-19 Statement from Parks & Recreation Department, last updated January 26, 2021

The City of Bedford continues working with county and state health officials in regard to COVID-19.  It is the City’s desire to do all we can to limit exposure and maintain a safe, healthy environment; therefore, Ellenwood Center remains closed to the general public and all in-person Parks & Recreation programs and activities; including Ellenwood rentals, remain suspended.

Until the Governor releases new orders reducing mandates and carefully considering the safety of our residents, participants, and staff the City will continue to monitor the situation to establish a tentative re-open date of Ellenwood Center and in-person programming.

Information regarding COVID-19 can be found at www.bedfordoh.gov, Centers for Disease Control at www.cdc.gov, and the Cuyahoga County Board of Health at www.ccbh.net.
