Reminder: Dogs Not Permitted at Jeffrey Park



Under Bexley code 618.15(a), dogs are not permitted at Jeffrey Park or Commonwealth Park. We have a frequent number of park visitors each day, especially in the summer, including a large number of young children. Having dogs in these locations can present a safety concern that we are actively avoiding. In addition, dogs can have a negative impact on the fragile ecosystem at these parks, including the wildflowers and the animals that call our parks home. Please note that the Bexley Police Department is actively enforcing these laws. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

The Bexley Recreation and Parks Department is excited to announce a new Park 'n Play Program!

Kids are encouraged to hop on their bikes and head over to the Park 'n Play and join in activities with staff. Parents may also accompany any kids that may need a bit more supervision. There is no age limit on who can and cannot join. For more information on this free program, check out the Park 'n Play website

4th of July in Bexley is Right Around the Corner!



With the 4th of July being just a month away, we wanted to thank all of the organizers and community groups who work so hard to make our 4th of July celebrations arguably the best in the universe.

The Bexley Celebrations Association (BCA) works year-round to plan the parade, evening activities, and the fireworks. In addition, the support provided by the City of Bexley Service, Recreation, and Police Departments allows for the events to run smoothly year after year. The Bexley Celebrations Association receives generous support from the Bexley Chamber of Commerce, Bexley-Eastmoor-Berwick Realty Association, Capital University, Kemba Financial Credit Union, Bexley Lions Club, the Bexley Community Foundation, and a host of other community businesses. However, every year, the biggest contributor to this day is YOU! If you haven't had a chance to do so yet, consider providing financial support for the 4th of July festivities by visiting www.bexleycelebrations.org. 4th of July activities are fully funded by donations from residents like you, so thank you Bexley!
