During the 1990's decade, Medina County was one of the top 5 fastest growing counties in the state of Ohio. The charming city of Medina, located right in the center of the county, was attracting people for its excellent schools, historical character, and being only a short drive to both Akron and Cleveland. Between 1980 and 1990, the population shot up 26 percent. Medina was the perfect little town to move to.
The 10.75 acre plot of land known as Memorial Park was donated and established as a city park in 1968. Situated between Harding St, N Harmony St, and E Homestead, Memorial Park had always been a place for families and kids to spend time all year round, offering sledding hills in the winter and a community pool in the summer. In response to Medina's rapid growth, in 1992, J.U.M.P. playground and a variety of other amenities were added to make this park a place for everyone.
