Grand opening scheduled for Urbana’s Pointe North


The city of Urbana will celebrate the grand opening of Pointe North at 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 28.

Located just north of Grimes Field at 2222 N. U.S. Route 68, Pointe North features fishing holes that opened to the public in early spring.

During the event, the Ohio Department of Natural Resources’ Division of Wildlife will host a youth fishing derby in which prizes will be awarded to the child who catches the largest fish.

Wildlife officers, local law enforcement and firefighters will be on hand to help youths with the fishing derby.
