Suffield Town HallFounded in 1802, the community of Suffield Township, Ohio lies in the southwest corner of Portage County. We are uniquely situated in close proximity to Akron, Ohio to the northwest and Hartville, Ohio to the south. This gives our community a great mix of big city opportunities combined with rural charm.

With a population of 6285 as noted by the U.S. Census Bureau in 2013, Suffield township is a close knit community - a community where neighbors look out for each other and wave when passing on the road. Township services include a highly trained Fire Department providing Fire and EMS protection to the township, as well as a hard working Road Department taking care of the roadways and other services related needs of the community.

We welcome you to our community. Please explore our web site to see more of what Suffield has to offer!

A lot of residents have had questions about the cleanup of the old Teledyne Monarch site at the southern border of our township. Our zoning inspector, Mr. Adam Bey, is on top of this issue and it has now migrated up to involve the EPA. We know that it appears to be moving at a snail's pace, but things really are moving. Please be patient with us as we work to resolve this issue.

Photos Wanted

We are looking for photos to display on this website.  Preferably, these photos should be of Suffield related matters, such as photos of places, events or people in the township.  What we'd like to do is set up a slide show of photos on the main page.  While current photos are always in fashion, older photos would also be of interest to our visitors.

If you have photos you'd like to share, send them by e-mail to  Give us just a brief note on what the photo represents and the date or approximate date it was taken.  If you want names of people in the photo published, give us that information as well.  Not all photos submitted will be published to this website.

In the meantime, check out the photos we already have in the photo gallery.  Also, if you have a Suffield-based public service organization and would like to have your events added to our calendar, let the webmaster know.  And finally, thanks to the Suffield Leaugue and all its hardworking members for another great Memorial Day Parade.

Wingfoot Lake Park

Wingfoot Lake State Park is Suffield's only park.   It was opened by the Ohio State Parks & Recreation Department in 2009.  Goodyear had operated the park since the 1960's as a private playground for its employees and for corporate retreats.  As the company footprint grew smaller in the Akron area Goodyear decided to close the park in 2006.  To learn more about the park, such as rental of the facilities, visit the park's website:
