Canfield is a great place to call home. The people are friendly and there are many things to do close by. There are walking/bike paths close by for everyone to use. There is an experimental farm that houses animals and they have family activities throughout the year.

We also have the Canfield Fair which is the 2nd largest county fair in the state of Ohio.

During 4th of July, we are known to have one of the biggest 4th of July Parades and fireworks display at the Canfield Fairgrounds which has additional activities for the family prior to the fireworks.

Canfield is a small town with a variety of things to do. The food options in this area are great. Route 224 provides a range of food options from fancy restaurants to fast food services. Located near Boardman, there are many entertainment options as well. It is a short drive to movie theaters, ice rinks, bowling alleys, etc. The school system is very good from pre-k through high school. The city itself is not overwhelmingly busy but everything you need is never more than a short drive away.
We moved last April to Meanderwood Estates. It is a friendly safe neighborhood with lots of kids. The kids in the neighborhood warmly welcomed my three children. There is a soccer field, park and bike trail nearby.
