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!

Keep Suffield Clean

As part of an effort to keep our township clean and to provide community recycling, the Portage County Solid Waste Management's office provides Suffield Township with the Recycle bins that are on State Route 43, across from the Township Road Department.  And yes, the township pays a fee for these bins.  It has been reported that of all the townships in Portage County, Suffield is one of the leaders in community recycling.

Occasionally, however, people will dump non-recyclable trash in the recycling area or in other places around the township.  This is both unsightly and illegal.  Alex Boulton has been assigned by the Portage County Solid Waste Management director, Bill Steiner, to investigate these type of complaints.  Alex Boulton is a Sheriff's deputy and has the legal authority to give warnings, issue citations or make arrests as necessary.

If you see a place where trash has been dumped illegally, call Alex Boulton at 330-678-8808.  If you find hazardous waste that needs immediate attention, such as the remnants of a meth lab, call the Portage County Sheriff at 330-296-5100.  Do your part to keep Suffield Township clean and a great place to live.

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:
