Parks and Recreation

Ladoga is fortunate to have a large family friendly recreation area for all ages to enjoy.

Located at our park is a basketball court, tennis court, two playground areas, two open air shelter houses, two lighted baseball/softball diamonds, and a soccer/football field.

The Ladoga Park Shelters are available for public use by reservations. Please contact the Town Hall at 765-942-2531 for availability. Public Restrooms are available when reservations are made.

The Park has many large century old trees and some newly planted trees donated by J & D Tree Surgery of Ladoga.

The Ladoga Youth Baseball Association and the Southmont Youth Soccer League currently use the fields for practices and games.

The Ladoga Lions Club helps with maintenance and repair of shelters and uses these shelters and the park area the first weekend of August every year for their Annual Fish Fry.

Street Department

Roger Perry - Street Superintendent

The Ladoga Street Department is responsible for a wide range of services for the Town residents and merchants as follows:

SNOW REMOVAL

Town employees are used during the winter months to remove snow from streets to avoid the need to hire outside contractors. Presently, the Town has the ability to equip two town trucks with plows, has access to one fire truck with a plow, and has use of a backhoe. Streets are kept cleared and spot salted when needed.


LAWN AND LANDSCAPE MAINTENANCE

The Street Department is responsible for all lawn and landscape maintenance in the Town Park and other roadside areas located throughout the town. They also routinely prune trees located on street and alley right of ways and under power lines.


STREET PAVING

Each year streets within the Town are assessed for needed repairs or paving. The Town workers provide a list of repairs to the Town council for approval. This list is reviewed and depending on the amount of funding available, repairs are completed by an independent contractor.


OTHER SERVICES

During the summer months of each year, curbs, streets, and water hydrants are painted. The Water, Street, and Sewer Departments work together to reduce the expense of hiring outside contractors to clean and maintain storm sewers, water mains, and sewer lines. Please report any missing street signs, malfunctioning street lights, or vandalism to the Town Hall. 765-942-2531

Emergency Medical

The volunteer ambulance service is operated by Ladoga Rescue and drivers are supplied by the Ladoga Volunteer Fire Department. There are currently five volunteer EMT's and four first responders.

Representatives are available to preschools, schools, and other organizations for educational purposes.

Ladoga Rescue welcomes anyone who would like to serve their community in a voluntary capacity.

The first “Fire Truck” was purchased new in 1934 and is still in use today as a parade vehicle.

The fire department is currently seeking a planning grant from the OCRA for a feasibility study for a new fire department building which would provide several bays.  Currently they only have one overhead door providing limited exiting of equipment.

Police Department

The Ladoga Police Department has two patrol cars. Ladoga currently has two part time marshals and one reserve deputy. The department is not a 24-hour police department, however, together they put in approximately 40 hours. In order to provide as much coverage as possible, we have a good working relationship with the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department, which dispatches our officers by radio when they are on duty or will send their officers if we are not available. In turn, we will help their department any time they request and wherever they are needed.
