Archbold, Ohio is that rarity among communities-a town where growth is based on an already thriving infrastructure.A town prepared to support further growth because it has mastered the process. A town of 4346 people which supports well over 4,000 jobs. A town which is prepared to help you succeed. In 1999, Archbold chose to become a “Community of Character.” The village, churches and businesses are working to prove that together we can promote positive character qualities in our youth and community.

Archbold Parks & Recreation

The last couple months have been super busy for the Parks & Recreation Department.  You will see exciting changes in several parks!

Thanks to a private donation of $200,000 in addition to park funds, we were able to get started on our new ball diamond project at Memorial Park.  Contractors wrapped up work in early September and parks and recreation department employees are installing irrigation and planting grass.  We will be playing ball there before you know it!  We are working on plans for dugouts, bleachers, a concession stand/restroom building, sidewalks, parking lots, lighting and of course, more diamonds.  It will all happen in time, as money is available.  The additional diamonds will alleviate lots of scheduling issues, as well as afford us the opportunity to bring more revenue sources to the community through tournaments, showcases and clinics.

We were also lucky to have over 20 volunteers from Worthington Steel come out and work with us on October 4, Community Involvement Day, 2018.  In addition to a substantial donation towards the new diamonds, they planted 47 trees.  20+ volunteers can plant trees really quickly!  After all the tree planting was completed, they installed new fence toppers on all the existing ball diamonds.  They will be a welcome addition in the spring!

Also in October our playground at Woodland Park got a much needed upgrade!  All the ground fall protection around the play structures was completely redone.  It looks amazing!  Be sure to stop by for a visit before the snow flies!
