Parks

Genoa Township operates five developed parks, a community garden, a sledding hill and cross-country ski path, and an extensive trail network that serves as a portion of the over 300-mile Ohio to Erie Trail linking Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati.

Roads
Road maintenance involves monitoring the roads and prioritizing repairs, snow removal, street sweeping, removal of dead animals, and managing activities in the public right of way including tree removal, sidewalks, and permitted projects. 

There is a combination of local, county and state-managed roadways that run throughout Genoa Township.  Each entity takes care to maintain the roadways within its jurisdiction.
