We are delighted to introduce you to the wide array of outdoor wonders, exciting activities, and engaging programs that await you in Plain City. Our community boasts a number of local parks, each offering a unique experience and a chance to connect with nature and neighbors!

Many are familiar with Pastime Park, a beloved and cherished park that is a favorite among residents and visitors alike. This gem provides a tranquil retreat, including the Pastime Park Campground, scenic walking trails, athletic fields, inviting picnic areas, and much more.

But that's not all—we have an abundance of amenities to cater to your recreational needs. Test your skills on our pickleball courts or enjoy a round of disc golf on our professionally designed course. For those seeking natural adventures, we offer access to the Big Darby Creek, where you can indulge in fishing and canoeing.

We also take great pride in our diverse range of programs designed to entertain and educate. Explore our educational initiatives focused on Ohio's natural bounty, and discover fascinating insights into the rich heritage of our region. Stay entertained year-round with our exciting lineup of community events, including the Plain City Farmers' Market, the summer Music in the Park series, the annual July 4th Celebration, and the heartwarming Christmas Under the Clock, just to name a few.

We believe in the power of community, and that's why we're always seeking enthusiastic volunteers and sponsors to join us in growing and enhancing our parks and programming. Whether you have a passion for preserving nature, promoting healthy lifestyles, or creating unforgettable experiences, we welcome you to be a part of our dedicated team.

2020 Parks & Recreation Master Plan
In preparation for continued improvement and future growth in our community, the Village of Plain City commissioned a Parks & Recreation Master Plan in 2020. This study analyzed our current facilities and recreational opportunities and established a strategic roadmap to guide the direction of our parks and recreational programming in the future.

Residents are invited to download and view the master plan to gain a better understanding of the exciting initiatives and enhancements we have in store. Your feedback is invaluable to us! We encourage you to explore the plan and share any comments or questions you may have. Together, we can shape the future of our parks and recreational programming and make Plain City an even better place to live, work, and play!
