GRD Lacrosse Night

Posted on May 5th, 2021 by Lara

GRD Boys/Girls Lacrosse Night has been rescheduled. Any boy and girl GRD Spring Lacrosse participant wearing their GRD jersey will get into the game for FREE! For anyone who purchased tickets to the previously scheduled game, these will be honored for the May 7th game. Need tickets see ticket purchase info here.

The game starts at 7:00PM and the kids will walk across the field at halftime and will be announced. After they walk the field they will form a tunnel for our team to run out to the field after halftime. They will meet at the furthest gate (near the victory bell) before the 2nd quarter is over. The GRD will have someone to round the kids up when it is time and get them organized. 

This game will be a “White Out” so have everyone wear something white for the game. 

Please remind everyone that COVID precautions need to be taken. Social distancing and masks are a requirement.

Greatings GRD Residents,

The past year has been uniquely challenging and yet very exciting. The Granville Recreation District has navigated Covid-19 while continuing to offer programs following state guidelines, as well as passing a five-year 0.75 mill operating levy. We would like to thank all of those who have continued to participate, keeping our program numbers at typical or even above normal participation levels. For those who have not been involved over the past year, we hope to see you soon!        

As many of you know, Governor DeWine continues to make announcements about the re-opening of Ohio. We will continue to evaluate the current landscape in order to offer every program possible. Please keep in mind that as programs continue, we all need to do our part to follow Ohio’s guidelines and respect one another. This cooperation gives our community the best chance to get programming back to a state of normalcy.

In addition to one million dollars of capital improvements slated to begin in 2021, the GRD is also looking forward to an enhanced Concert on the Green program, improved maintenance, and programming resources. As our
leadership team strives to improve Granville Recís programs and facilities, we will continue to be committed to our community. We welcome and value your input as we strive to make decisions based on industry standards, common sense, and our communityís preferences.   

We appreciate your support, encourage you to reach out to our team to share feedback.   

Enjoy your spring and summer!


Andy Wildman
Executive Director
Granville Recreation District
