Top 6 Parks with Large Field for Outdoor Activities and Picnic

When your children want to play soccer but your yard isn’t big enough for their “mighty kicks” or you are tired of watching them circling around the driveway in their bikes, you make a list of metro parks with fields and share with friends who might also be looking 😉

There are many other amazing parks in our area but these are our top 6. They are relatively close to one another. So if one is too crowded for your family, you can get back in the car and drive to another park.


Treaty Line Area

995 Treaty Line Road, Akron, OH 44313

Smaller Soccer field, but we love it. Great for picnic there’s a parcours trail if you feel like hiking. This is actually one of my favorites short hike, when I feel adventurous.

Big Bend Area

1337 Merriman Road, Akron, OH 44313

Large field, train tracks (no trains right now but when they are running again you can catch the CVRS passing by), trails and path for bike.

Lone Spruce Area

1350 Sand Run Parkway, Akron, OH 44313

Great for picnic. It’s smaller but quite private if you get there first to reserve your spot. We did a birthday party there for my daughter and it was pretty awesome!

Copley Community Park

3232 Copley Road, Copley, OH 44321

There are a few larger field at CCP. Great for running around, walking trails, and just to enjoy a picnic with family.

Bath Community Park

1615 N. Cleveland-Massillon Road, Akron, OH 44333

Great big fields, trails and path for biking, and picnic.

The Octagon Shelter CVNP

801 Truxell Road, 1.5 miles west of Akron Cleveland Road, Peninsula, OH 44264

Amazing large field to run around. Very close to all other CVNP trails and the ledges. Weekend could be very crowded though.
