News for Living, Working and Playing in Deerfield Township

A public square with entertainment areas. Chef-driven restaurants and even a microbrewery. Plus, new apartments, a 150-room hotel, a medical office building and retailers offering uniquely local experiences. That's the vision of the District at Deerfield, a new multi-use development recently designated as an Entertainment District in Deerfield Township.  

The site is located on 28 acres between Mason-Montgomery Road and Wilkens Boulevard. At its center will be a 2-acre public square that will play host to community events and live music.  

Roadway improvements to extend Parkway Drive and provide access to District at Deerfield are scheduled to begin within the next 60 days. The first phase of construction could break ground later this spring; the second phase, which includes the public square, is expected to break ground in early 2019.

You can read more about the development online or in the news.
 

This week, the township's Fire Rescue team is undergoing recertification in bail-out training. This skill ensures the safety of our firefighters in the event they need to make a quick exit from the upper-level floors of a building.

Firefighters identify a secure anchor point and use special equipment to control their descent to ground level and safety. As with many of our team's training procedures, we hope they never need to use this skill. However, fires are not predictable, and rapidly changing conditions arise. Proper training and proactive planning help ensure our firefighters have the tools they need to respond to potentially dangerous situations and stay safe in the process.

Support Township Parks This Weekend at the Run for the Green

Kick off your St. Patrick's Day with a unique run for a good cause. We think Irish eyes will be smiling on this year's Run for the Green, which returns to Landen Deerfield Park on Saturday, March 17, at 9 a.m.  

Run for the Green is not your average 5K race. Participants travel a densely wooded, winding dirt trail while encountering changing elevations and calf-deep creek crossings along the way. It's a hardy workout with proceeds benefitting our Deerfield Township parks.  

The race is the first in this year's Dirt Days Trail Series of 10 events. Awards are presented to winners in each division, with door prizes and a variety of treats offered along the way. You can learn more or register for the race online.
  
Mark Your Calendar for this Year's Easter Egg Hunt on March 31

When piles of candy start to line the walls of our Parks & Recreation offices, we know the township's annual Easter Egg Hunt is just around the corner! This year's event on Saturday, March 31, will feature two sessions, at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., for children ages 4 to 11, as well as the low-key Egg Patch for toddlers not yet ready for the thrill of the larger hunt. Rumor has it the Easter Bunny will make an appearance.

The township is grateful to our partner Origins Church and to supporters including Cincinnati Children's, Deerfield Fire Rescue, the Warren County Sheriff's Department, Skidaddles and Bear Paddle Swim Club for providing booths, activities and giveaways for this free event.
