“We like living in Slavic Village because our neighborhood is very nice and peaceful. For us, it’s also convenient because it’s close to where we work, our favorite stores, and the school. We are especially grateful to Villa Montessori Center, where our daughter attends Pre-K.”
– The Diaz Family
Slavic Village Development celebrates its past and embraces its future, supporting its historic churches and institutions — including Bohemian Hall and the Polish Cultural Center — and its ethnic restaurants. Two new athletic fields and a long list of recreational opportunities for kids energize and encourage a new focus on active lifestyles.
Slavic Village Development is working on a $100,000 public art project for its three-mile Morgana Run Bike Trail, including an oversized 6,000-square-foot mural to be painted on a highly visible factory. The mural shows abstractly what one sees along the trail, including the waterfalls at Mill Creek, green space, housing and industry.
Drive east on Broadway, turn right on Warner Road, and you will see it: A waterfall that stands more than 40 feet tall. In fact, Mill Creek Falls is the largest of its kind in Northeast Ohio.
