Located along the shores of the Ohio & Erie Canalway, the Greater Akron area includes a tri-county region of Medina, Portage and Summit counties. Home to NBA All-Star and Akron native LeBron James, this area boasts a rich history and a variety of ethnic, cultural and social communities. Everyone feels welcome in Greater Akron!
Outdoor enthusiasts appreciate the adjacent Cuyahoga County Valley National Park, known for its hiking trails (125 miles worth!) and abundance of plants and wildlife. The area also has a vibrant downtown area with a thriving arts scene and Canal Park, home of the Akron RubberDucks, Akron’s minor league baseball team. The Downtown Akron Vision and Redevelopment Plan, led by community and business leaders, promises to make Akron even more exciting through redevelopment projects that will create retail, residential and mixed-use space in a historic block of the city.
