Welcome from the Mayor
Welcome to North Royalton, a unique suburb offering a picturesque setting where rural farmland meets bustling city life. This quaint yet vibrant community is sought after for its excellent school system, variety of housing options, growing recreational spaces, thriving business opportunities and numerous community-service organizations.
Despite extensive growth, the city has captured and preserved the country feel North Royalton was founded on. Embracing these roots, a great deal of greenspace has been conserved for both active and passive recreational amenities.
At Aukerman Park, located at York Road and Valley Parkway, residents and pets can take in the beauty of nature. The Cleveland Metroparks’ next venture, in partnership with the city, will be the redevelopment of Elek Springs, located off Bennett Road, into another park, also looped by a natural path. And, the completed All-Purpose-Trail now provides 32 miles of uninterrupted connectivity in our area. We are also in the midst of master planning to add more amenities and features to Memorial Park, better utilizing this asset to its full potential. For those who prefer the comfort of the indoors, the North Royalton Family YMCA has all the resources needed to achieve an active, healthy lifestyle.
North Royalton is on the road to a brighter tomorrow. The widening of state Route 82, expected to finish this fall, not only provides a smoother commute, it paves the way for broadened potential for businesses, the backbone of our city. Our Community Development Department is here to assist prospective and existing businesses with resources to grow their trades.
I invite you to peruse our newly redesigned city website and visit it often to stay current on events and happenings. It has been revamped to function as a much more user-friendly resource to help address any questions you may have as well as stay in the loop. Our Facebook page and city e-newsletter are great ways to stay plugged in too! Should you have any questions about our great community, the staff at city hall is always eager to help.
