Made possible in part by the generosity of the Cleveland Foundation, the extended hours are aimed at keeping youth engaged in positive activities during the late evening hours at recreation centers as an alternative to being on the street. We are excited to announce new programming for youth and young adults which includes yoga, ballet and chess. Updated programs and activities are the result of Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s Healthy Neighborhoods Initiative and the Office of Prevention, Intervention and Opportunity for Youth and Young Adults.

Participating recreation centers include:

· Lonnie Burten, 2511 East 46th St.
· Cudell, 1910 West Blvd.
· Glenville, 680 E. 113th.
· Zelma George, 3155 Martin L. King Blvd.
· Michael Zone, 6301 Lorain Ave.
· Earle B. Turner, 11300 Miles Ave.
· Fairfax, 2335 E. 82nd Street
· Thurgood Marshall, 8611 Hough Ave.

Normal business hours for recreation centers are 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Fridays and Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Each recreation center will offer youth basketball leagues as well as game room activities and swimming programs. Off-duty police officers will be present at each facility.

Browns Release Their 2017 Training Camp Schedule

browns

In addition to an upgraded training camp layout that includes more than twice as many seats as previous years, the Browns have modified the ticketing process to ensure as many fans as possible are able to receive an up-close and personal view of the team’s preparations for the 2017 season.

Browns fans may secure prioritized access by registering for tickets online and downloading the Browns Mobile App. Once registered, fans will receive their tickets through the Browns Mobile App to access practice. While registering for tickets is strongly recommended, the team will also grant Cleveland fans admittance to practice sessions on a walk-up basis, as space permits.

Browns 2017 season ticket members will have an exclusive window to register for open practices from June 20-21 prior to public availability opening at 10 a.m. on Thursday, June 22.

All tickets to training camp will be accessible through the Browns Mobile App. Printed tickets will not be available for training camp in 2017.

On Friday, Aug. 4, FirstEnergy Stadium will host the Orange & Brown Scrimmage, offering fans a unique chance to enjoy practice in the heart of downtown Cleveland. The stadium practice will be a full-pads scrimmage format in 2017.

The Browns’ largest open session returns to Cleveland after extending opportunities to fans in nearby regions through the Orange & Brown Scrimmage in Columbus the past two seasons and the 2014 Family Day at University of Akron’s InfoCision Stadium.

Free registration for the Orange & Brown Scrimmage opens to season ticket members on June 27 and to all fans on June 29. The practice will begin at 5 p.m. and will conclude with select autograph opportunities.

Fans will have the opportunity to register for prioritized access for up to three practices in Berea, along with a maximum of four guests, as space permits. Parties wishing to attend more than three practices or book for groups of six-or-more people are encouraged to contact the Browns ticket office directly (440-824-3434).

When arriving to open practices, fans can access the Browns training facility through the Beech Street entrance, with gates opening one hour before each session starts. Membership-services stations will also be available to all visitors inside and outside the complex to assist fans.

Parking is available on the campus of Baldwin Wallace University, near the intersection of Beech Street and Bagley Road.
