Schools, recreational opportunities and more complement a safe, prosperous community.
Communities within easy reach of the Union Hospital campus are extremely proud of their very high quality educational institutions. We are home to a campus of Kent State University, where students earn associate, bachelor and masters degrees. We also have an excellent collection of public and private schools, and a highly acclaimed vocational training center.
Dozens of churches representing all denominations meet residents’ spiritual needs. Recreational programs for both youths and adults are readily available year-round at our modern YMCA, which has youth programs in soccer, swimming, gymnastics and other sports.
Our area is well known for an outstanding network of well-tended public parks, including New Philadelphia’s Tuscora Park which attracts people from neighboring counties with its restored merry-go-round, ferris wheel and family-oriented facilities. A new water park in Uhrichsville is highly popular with families.
Several private health clubs, a country club and a yacht club enjoy thriving memberships, while residents also enjoy a dozen or more public golf courses within easy reach.
Our local economy benefits from a growing industrial base, thanks to a collection of active industrial parks including a new high-tech industrial park designed to attract up to 26 new businesses.
