Fun free things to do in the Akron Ohio area

Fun free family activities in the Akron area:

Barberton Edgewood Park & Spray Fountain
Some call them spraygrounds, spray fountains… whatever you call them, they’re fun and this one is FREE!
At Barberton Edgewood Park, they have both a playground area and a spray area with fun water features. If you need to cool off (and if we finally have no rain!), this is a fun and free local activity.
1170 Liberty Ave Barberton 44203 11:00am-8:00pm
Contact 330-848-6739 with questions

Flicks on the Falls
In Cuyahoga Falls, at the River Falls amphitheater, they have a free outdoor movie nearly each Thursday dieting the summer. There’s free parking at the decks on 2nd St, which is accessible from both Portage Tail and Broad Blvd.
Cartoons and/or entertainment before the movie begins just after dusk and the movie begins at dark, but keep in mind these times will vary.
Check out the 2015 schedule here!
You can bring your own snacks and drinks! Concessions will be available for purchase and, in previous weeks, there was a man making balloon animals for donations.
Strollers are welcome and you may bring your own chairs or blanket, but stadium style seating is available. It fills up early, so I’d recommend arriving well before the movie and enjoying a look at the fountain/spray area. You can even play in the spray while you wait!
They ask that no pets be brought to the outdoor movie area.
Contact the Development Department at 330.971.8135 or development@cityofcf.com if you have any questions.
