Memorial Day Flag Display Opportunity and Patriotic Word Search Puzzle

Even though as a community we are not able to come together to pay our respects this year, here is an opportunity to display your pride and appreciation for those Americans who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Feel free to print, color and display one or both of the American flag designs and tape them to a window or door to reflect a sense of unity and support of this time-honored American tradition.

In addition to the flags, you can also download a PatrioticWord Search Puzzle. It’s a meaningful way to honor this sacred holiday with your family.

The Village offers a multitude of seasonal recreational opportunities.

Whether it’s an organized athletic activity or simply a stroll in the park with your family, Cuyahoga Heights residents, businesses and visitors have a wide range of recreational opportunities.

In the summer, the Village parks and swimming pool offer a lot of activities for all ages. Sign up for a swimming lesson, join a soccer or softball team, go bowling, play basketball or just have a picnic and watch the children enjoy the playground.

The Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation also stretches through the villages of Cuyahoga Heights and Valley View. The reservation follows a portion of its namesake, the historic 309-mile Ohio and Erie Canal.

Together with the Cuyahoga River, the northernmost remaining 4.4 miles of watered canal provides wildlife management areas, fishing opportunities and scenic beauty. Picnicking, hiking trails, a 7.2-mile all-purpose trail, and unique natural and cultural heritage interpretive graphics are also features of the reservation.

The Leonard Krieger CanalWay Center serves as a visitor center on the busy Towpath Trail that runs from Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation to Akron.
