I love the Munroe Falls Metro Park. Hands down, it is one of the best hidden jewels around Akron.
What are you looking to do? Swim, relax, play volleyball, tennis, walk, hike, play basketball, paddle around on paddle boats, take your kids to a safe playground? Munroe Falls can accomodate any of those requests!
They have a concession stand (mostly quickie food) hot dogs, ice cream, water, pop, candy, hot pretzels. Or you can use one of their many grills on the property. They have shelters that can be reserved in advance for your party, although I am not sure what the fee is.
Munroe Falls Metro Park's centerpiece is their lake. It seems to be divided into a few sections, over by the diving boards is the kids section - to be avoided if you are looking for peace and quiet! Then over on the other side of the lake is the quiet, serious tanners and reading adults section. That is the side I am normally on.
They have restrooms, showers, and even an air pump up by concessions to inflate your raft for you!
Best of all, Munroe Falls MP is CLEAN - no litter, no cans, no bottle laying around, no junk in the parking lot - which is a nice break from other local parks.
I highly recommend, if you haven't been there yet to visit this beatiful, relaxing site. You'll be glad you did!
