Goodyear Heights is a great place to make your Akron home. In addition to being noted as one of America’s most affordable places to live by Trulia and Forbes magazine, the Greater Akron area has many advantages:
Akron maintains a great school system – and almost all of the schools in the city have been rebuilt within the last 12 years as neighborhood community learning centers – including all of the schools in the East Cluster, serving Goodyear Heights.
COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES:
13 within commuting distance. 32 others in a 50 mile radius.
HOSPITALS & HEALTH CARE:
Akron offers great medical care, thanks to Nationally-ranked hospitals like Summa Health System, Cleveland Clinic Akron General, and Akron Children’s Hospital.
While Goodyear Heights already offers more open parkland than most other Akron neighborhoods, it’s good to know you’re only about 20 minutes away from the 33,000 acre Cuyahoga Valley National Park, which stretches between Akron and Cleveland.
Akron is home to a number of sporting events, including The Bridgestone Invitational Golf Championship, the All-American Soap Box Derby, the Akron Rubber Ducks minor league baseball team, the Akron Marathon Race Series. Football fans can watch the University of Akron Zips play their MAC rivals at Infocision Stadium, and pro sports fans can head to Cleveland to watch the Browns, Cavaliers and Indians.
The Civic Theater, E.J. Thomas Hall, Lock 3 and the new Goodyear Theaters at East End are superb entertainment and music venues. Enjoy Akron’s great cultural resources like The Akron Symphony, Akron Art Museum, Stan Hywet Hall & Gardens, Ohio Shakespeare Festival, Rubber City Theatre, Weathervane Playhouse and a host of art galleries and arts resources – led by ArtsNow.
