The Stark County Park District is an independent political subdivision created and governed by Section 1545 of the Ohio Revised Code. A volunteer five-member Park Commission is appointed by the Probate Court and governs the Park District.
Members of the Park Commission are very interested in your thoughts and comments, and invite members of the public to the monthly meetings.
