Readers nominated and voted for their favorite place to host a kid's birthday party in North Canton
The results are in, and the award for best place to host a kid's birthday party in North Canton goes to ... Dogwood Park! The park snagged 33 percent of the vote this week. But, so did Park Centre Lanes. Editor Morgan Day broke the tie by choosing which locale had the most nominations, and that was Dogwood Park. If your favorite place to host a kid's birthday party didn't win, you can still write a rave review in our Directory. And normally we would tell you to watch for our next installment of Readers' Choice Sunday; however, Readers' Choice is taking a little summer vacation and will return in a few weeks. (More on that Sunday.)

It was just one month ago that Larry Tripp stood before the North Canton City Council and voiced his opinion on the safety — or lack of it — at Dogwood Park Skate Park. And Monday night, council members heard more concerns about Dogwood Park.
