  • The Board of Park Commissioners for Metro Parks, Serving Summit County will break ground on a new multipurpose trail that will connect Akron and Kent, July 3, at 10 a.m., near the intersection of East Avenue and Erie Road in Tallmadge.
    The Freedom Trail will follow an unused railroad corridor on land owned by METRO Regional Transit Authority, and construction will take place in three phases. The first phase, which should be completed in December, is 4.2 miles long and runs between Tallmadge Circle and Kent’s Middlebury Road.
    Eventually, the trail will connect to the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail near Downtown Akron.
