The grounds are located a bout seven miles from the heart of downtown Youngs town. It is very easy to reach from Warren, Girard. Niles, McDonald, Sharon, and Vien na. as well as Youngstown. The easiest way to reach the grounds is to take Ohio State Route 90 (Belmont Ave. Extension). If you are traveling north, turn left on West Smith-Ste wart Road.

A lovely playground is in the making for both young sters and oldsters. The dance floor, stage, and re freshment stand are most spacious. This great accomplishment should make the Croatian people proud that finally they have a place of their own, as this land is being dedicated to all the Croatian people.
