New Franklin is home to Portage Lakes State Park, which has a variety of activities including boating, fishing, and swimming. New Franklin boarders Coventry Township as well as the towns of Barberton and Norton. Minutes from downtown Akron, this community is quiet and close to fun.
A number of local restaurants are situated around The Portage Lakes area. Enjoy a fabulous fireworks display during the 4th of July along with a sandcastle contest and decorated boat parade. If you love being near the water, but close to town then New Franklin is a great place to call home.
