Parks and recreation

We only have a few weeks left of the pool season. The Pickerington Community Pool will be closed when the Pickerington Local School District is in session, but will remain open on the weekends.

You can visit the pool with Punch Passes or Guest Pass (if accompanied by Season Pass holder).

Punch Passes can be purchased as 5 visits for $40, 10 visits for $80, 15 visits for $120 or 20 visits for $160.

Punch passes are sold at the Pickerington Community Pool, 11330 Stonecreek Drive S., or at the Pickerington Parks and Recreation Department, 100 Lockville Road.

Friday Night Flicks

Come out to Sycamore Park Friday, Aug. 16, for the final Friday Night Flicks of the season presented by Fairfield Federal with a showing of The Odd Life of Timothy Green (rated PG).

This inspiring, magical story is about a happily married couple, Cindy and Jim Green, who can't wait to start a family, but can only dream about what their child would be like.

When young Timothy shows up on their doorstep one stormy night, Cindy and Jim -- and their small town of Stanleyville -- learn sometimes the unexpected can bring some of life's greatest gifts.
