Welcome to Goodyear Heights
Rich in history and culture, Goodyear Heights will forever stand as the neighborhood built for the people by the people. This neighborhood encourages community engagement and exemplifies historical appreciation for the past, present and future lifeblood of industry.
As the story goes, when the rubber industry first came to Akron, plant owners built for their workers neighborhoods to support and encourage long term relationships and communities. Each property in these neighborhoods came with a fruit tree by request of community developers so that children can understand where fruit comes from. Goodyear Heights is represented by the fruit tree to represent strong communal roots, rich heritage and an ongoing investment in the prosperity of the community.
