Parma has had many communities grow and exist for a while then be absorbed by other communities. For example, North Parma has been included now into Parma itself and Parma Center is no longer a community but just a location in Parma. (Parma Center is at 043-15-31N 077-47-28W)
Parma does still have these communities:
Bartlett Corners... an out-of-date reference to an area on route 259 that is part of Hilton
Collamer... just west of Hilton
Hilton... village just north of Parma
Parma... the village included within the boundaries of the township
Parma Corners... just south of Parma
I could find nothing in the crime stats that indicated that Parma was anything but a very safe place to live or visit. No murders or rapes or robberies recorded. Just a few thefts were on the information sheets.
So, you can be sure you will have a safe visit in Parma, but lock your doors anyways just to prevent yourself from becoming that one in a thousand victim.
This is a very large park (110 acres) for so small a town. It reflects the communities interest in healthy and strong children. The park has ball fields, tennis courts, play grounds, a few picnic tables and a rentable pavilion. It also has a large fishing pond and fine hiking trails, a couple of which are also secluded enough for birding in spring and fall.
Recently they have added a large skate/skateboard cemented area for the many advocates of that new and rising sport.
to get there:
1300 Parma-Hilton Town Line Road
Nine Hole golf course open to the public from May to October. (They have added a five hole practice course for beginners).
The 9-hole course is 900 yards for $15. The fairways are easy but the greens are small and tricky.
The facilities are family owned and operated. Besides the course there is a small club house where you can get some refreshments. They have a resident local pro who can help your with you technique or sell you some extra balls.
