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. 


Join the Park 'n Play Crew This Summer

The Bexley Recreation and Parks Department is excited to announce a new Park 'n Play Program! It is a totally free program where staff organizes fun and exciting activities throughout the summer at Jeffrey Park, The David H. Madison Community Pool, and the elementary playgrounds (Cassingham, Maryland, and Montrose). 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


Get Ready to Swim! 

The David H. Madison Community Pool is now open for the summer to Bexley Residents and their guests. Residents can purchase memberships or a daily admission pass. With amazing amenities such as a zero depth entry leisure pool with a play structure, an 8-lane competition pool, a diving well, two (2) water slides, a toddler pool and a splash pad, the community pool provides hours upon hours of fun in the sun for all ages.
