Canal Park, Akron's baseball stadium, is located in the heart of Downtown Akron.

 


About 30 miles south of Cleveland, midway along the historic Ohio & Erie Canalway, lies one of the best-kept secrets of the Great Lakes region. In its heyday, Akron was the undisputed Rubber Capital of the World, with manufacturing giants B.F. Goodrich, Goodyear Tire & Rubber, Firestone and General Tire dominating the landscape and economy. Today, Akron remains known as the City of Invention, a world-renowned center of polymer research and development and a trucking industry hub with easy access to a network of superhighways. Yet the city is also surrounded by lakes and rivers teeming with wildlife, 10,500 acres of Summit County Metro Parks and the 33,000-acre Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
