RJRD Names the Park
The Richfield Joint Recreation District (RJRD) is proud to announce that the park located at 4374 Broadview Rd Richfield, OH has been officially named Richfield Heritage Preserve. The RJRD Board of Trustees voted to name the park at its meeting of August 22, 2016. We are excited to take this step as one of many as we plan the future of Richfield Heritage Preserve. A significant next step will be to begin discussing the master plan for the park that we have been working on with our consultant, the Environmental Design Group. This is a very exciting time for Richfield and the RJRD is honored to have been charged with this opportunity. View the announcement in the West Side Leader here.
