The Village offers a multitude of seasonal recreational opportunities.

Whether it’s an organized athletic activity or simply a stroll in the park with your family, Cuyahoga Heights residents, businesses and visitors have a wide range of recreational opportunities.

In the summer, the Village parks and swimming pool offer a lot of activities for all ages. Sign up for a swimming lesson, join a soccer or softball team, go bowling, play basketball or just have a picnic and watch the children enjoy the playground.

The Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation also stretches through the villages of Cuyahoga Heights and Valley View. The reservation follows a portion of its namesake, the historic 309-mile Ohio and Erie Canal.

Together with the Cuyahoga River, the northernmost remaining 4.4 miles of watered canal provides wildlife management areas, fishing opportunities and scenic beauty. Picnicking, hiking trails, a 7.2-mile all-purpose trail, and unique natural and cultural heritage interpretive graphics are also features of the reservation.

The Leonard Krieger CanalWay Center serves as a visitor center on the busy Towpath Trail that runs from Ohio & Erie Canal Reservation to Akron.
