Head immediately west out of downtown Akron
to explore the Lane-Wooster
neighborhood. The neighborhood's proximity to downtown, plus easy access to the Innerbelt and Interstate 77/76, makes for a great commute for both work and play.
Locals head to Mannings Pond to fish and enjoy recreation by the water. Hear the lions and bears roar as you near the Akron Zoo, located at the north edge of the neighborhood, or visit Perkins Park for green space and a swimming pool. Step out of your Lane-Wooster apartment and join locals at Nicole's restaurant for a heaping plate of soul food, or when you just want a classic burger, check out the vintage style of Bob's Hamburg, a burger and breakfast joint that served its first burgers in 1931.
