A Love Letter to German Village

Michael Cornelis | Board of Trustees President

I love the people. Our community has such a big heart. We care for one another. And we come together to do great things. We help each other. We are there for each other in times of great joy and sadness.

I love our historical beauty. My daily walks and jogs around the Village are a constant reminder of just how spectacularly our neighborhood has stood the test of time. The brick streets and sidewalks are classic reminders of our historical preservation mission.

I love our parks. Schiller Park is such a gem of our city. I love watching the dogs meet their friends there for a romp. And how great is summer’s night under the stars enjoying Actors Theatre? Frank Fetch is so beautiful and quite possibly the most photographed pocket park in Ohio.

I love our merchants. How lucky are we that we live just steps away from so many great restaurants, pubs, shops, coffee shops, and salons? [ And the people who work at these fine places all are just the nicest and friendliest people out there. I truly feel that they can feel the vibe of our great neighborhood and they love it as much as we do.]
