We expect to see hundreds of Beachwood residents at the Beachwood Family Aquatic Center for opening day tomorrow (weather permitting). This is one of my favorite days in this community as residents gather to celebrate the informal kick-off to summer with pure and simple fun at one of the most amenity-filled pools in Northeast Ohio.
Residents of all ages take advantage of the center’s many offerings. Lap swimmers enjoy the eight 25m lanes, while children splash among the sprinklers and spray grounds. The zero-depth entry makes it easier for residents with limited mobility, while the tot pools offers a safe spot for our tiniest members. Our five water slides are always a hit for all ages.
This year marks the 14th season for the $5 million Beachwood Family Aquatic Center. This state-of-the-art aquatic center has served as a tremendous resource for our community, welcoming an average of nearly 54,000 visitors every summer.
The facility will be open for the holiday weekend on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. It will be closed the following week, but re-open Saturday, June 3 for the full season which runs daily through August 15 and on weekends through September 4.
Resident membership rates are very reasonable. This year, we are also offering a further reduced rate for seniors at just $25 a season. You may purchase your membership in advance of opening at City Hall, or at the Beachwood Family Aquatic Center when it’s open this weekend. Please don’t forget proof of residency.

The warm weather has arrived, flowers have bloomed, school is almost out and the Beachwood Family Aquatic Center is preparing to open. As we approach Memorial Day weekend, here a few things to note:
Flag on Display
You may notice as you drive down Richmond Road that a gigantic, 1800 square foot American flag is on display on the lawn in front of City Hall. This flag is part of our annual tribute to honor the soldiers who have lost their lives in service to our country. Please feel free to stop and park at City Hall to get a closer view and pay honor to those who have paid the ultimate price to preserve our freedom.

Beachwood is proud to be a Heritage Home Program (HHP) community offering Beachwood residents free technical assistance for home repair and maintenance projects for homes 50 years or older.
The program, conducted in partnership with the Cleveland Restoration Society (CRS), has provided millions of dollars of free services to Beachwood residents. Last quarter alone in Beachwood (January – March 2017) HHP received 11 inquiries, 10 calls for technical assistance, 8 site visits and signed 3 loans with one pending.
HHP and CRS provide services including site visits to answer home repair, improvement and maintenance questions, advice on energy efficiency, access to information on local contractors, evaluation of bids and much more. Qualified Beachwood homeowners also have the option of obtaining a low-interest fixed-rate HHP loan. Eligible projects may include (and are not limited to):
If you have a home that’s 50 years or older, you may qualify for this free resource and should consider taking advantage of it.
