In October the Sunbury Parks and Recreation Survey went active on Survey Monkey. During last Wednesday’s (Nov. 16) Village Council meeting, it was announced that the survey had received 533 responses and would remain active through December 1.

Some area residents might not know how extensive village parks and recreation facilities already are and how both village and Big Walnut area residents use them.
In addition to recreation facilities maintained by the Big Walnut Local School District and used by area residents, Sunbury is home to Freedom Park, JR Smith Park, Rosecrans Park, Old Orchard Park, Evening Street Park, Ohio Fallen Heroes Memorial Park, Historic Sunbury Village Square, Sunbury Memorial Park, and two up-ground reservoirs slated for future park development.
In addition to families from the greater Big Walnut area using village parks and Big Walnut schools facilities for relaxation and recreation, a host of area youth athletic organizations draw park users from around eastern Delaware County for both practice sessions and league play, including Little League Baseball and Big Walnut Youth Athletic Association Football and Cheerleading.
Add to the above, the Anthony Kinslow Disc Golf Course at Freedom Park draws disc golf enthusiasts from around central Ohio and beyond; and the village’s two reservoirs are home to several fishing derbies each year.
