Community Overview

The City of Green, Ohio is located in southern Summit County on the Stark County border. The city has a history rich in agriculture with more than 25,000 residents. Some small farms dot the landscape amid 530 acres of city-owned parks. The city boasts many new homes and subdivisions, along with recreation facilities.

In 2007, Green was ranked as the 16th best place to raise a family by businessweek.com. Its top-rated school system, ample park land and green space, as well as the proximity to higher education and quality healthcare make it a great place to live, work, and play.  Runners, hikers, bikers and families who like to explore have plenty of options including the recreation of the Towpath Trail. The 110-mile towpath trail from Cleveland to below Canton offers places of tranquility, and hidden views of wildlife.  Summit County is home of the beautiful Cuyahoga Valley National Park with plenty of activities during each of the four seasons.  Green’s proximity to interstate highways put us minutes from major airports and the rich cultural benefits of Cleveland, Columbus, Pittsburgh and Akron.

Sports are a way of life in our region with many private and public golf courses as well as numerous lakes for fishing, boating and sailing. Not far from the Pro Football Hall of Fame, we also offer many sports opportunities for youth as well as adults including basketball, baseball, soccer, football, swimming, tennis and more.
