The Summit Lake Nature Center is located within the Reach Opportunity Center at 390 W. Crosier St., Akron. 

The pop-up nature center includes:

  • Displays
  • A reading corner
  • A small learning lab with discovery scopes and magnifying glasses
  • Naturalist-led programs throughout the summer

The Summit Lake Nature Center was made possible through support from the Reimagining the Civic Commons project. It's an opportunity for Summit Metro Parks to extend its reach to residents of the Summit Lake community near downtown Akron.

Reimagining the Civic Commons is supported by The JPB Foundation, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, The Kresge Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation, and local funders.
