The Cortland Park Board’s responsibilities include oversight of the community’s parks and recreational needs to include planning, promoting and maintaining the land and facilities. The development of facilities not only provides a service to our residents, but also provides opportunities for those outside our City to visit, participate, and support the local economy.
The City of Cortland has many beautiful parks and recreational areas that are continuously being improved and updated. In 2016, a new splash pad at Pearl Park opened, funded primarily through generous community donations. Also in 2016, a new sled hill was built at the new Eastlake MetroPark, a joint collaboration between the City and the Trumbull County MetroParks.
The City maintains five (5) parks: Pearl Park, Willow Park, Rotary Park, Point Park and Eastlake MetroPark. Facilities and activities include a splash pad, sled hill, soccer fields, baseball/softball fields, basketball courts, tennis courts, pickle ball courts, sand volleyball, skate board park, playground/picnic areas and restroom facilities.
Our sports facilities are home to the local youth baseball and soccer organizations, and the Lakeview High school tennis program.
