With summer just around the corner, and students bursting to be released from the halls of Upper Arlington High School, there are many things waiting for them on the other side. Movies in the park, swimming, and mini golf are just a few of the fun summer activities available this summer.
Movies In the Park
A tradition for many Upper Arlington families is going to the movies in the park over the summer. This summer, the movies will be shown in the style of drive-ins and campouts, and are located at the Mountview Baptist Church, Thompson Park and Sunny 95 Park. They will be showing them at 7:30 pm on June 11 and 25, July 9 and 15, and August 13. Movies are always free and open to the public, so feel free to grab a blanket, chairs, and your favorite snack to enjoy the movie. The movies being shown this summer are; Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, The Secret Life of Pets, Croods, The Sandlot, and Back To the Future.
This summer, three pools will be open for the 2021 session which lasts from Memorial Day weekend to Labor Day weekend. Reed Road Water Park, Devon Pool, and Tremont Pool will be utilizing a time block schedule and season passes will still be available. With an online reservation system, you can schedule an 120 time slot, and pool capacity will be 300 people per location per session.
Every Wednesday from May 19-October 27, there will be an Upper Arlington farmers market located in the Northwest corner of the Tremont Pool parking lot. They will be from 4:00-4:30. Regulations include no pets, facemasks are recommended, and allowing the vendor to bag your purchase. There are surrounding farmers markets in Hillard, Bexley, and the Franklin Park Conservatory.
There are many places and businesses opening back up this summer, like COSI, which opens June 3rd, and will be open 10:00-5:00, Thursday through Sunday. Reservations are required for every guest, and facemasks required for guests aged 6 and older. Public gardens are opening, bowling alleys, and mini golf. The summer of 2021 will still be a different and out of the ordinary summer, but more opportunities are available to make the memories of a summer to remember.
