— Paraphrased from the group’s Meetup page
Located within the Bath Nature Preserve, the Fairlawn Rotary Observatory is operated by the Summit County Astronomy Club. The facility was dedicated June 10, 2018. It is a medium-sized building with roll-off roof exposing the sky to several pier-mounted telescopes installed within. Free public observing programs are available, announced and coordinated via Meetup.com.
In May 2021 work began to double the size of the facility, adding a second building to the observatory that summer.
