Concrete and Culture: A walk through North Hill

Led by the North Akron Community Development Corporation team, we'll experience and consider the past, present, and potential of North Hill, starting with Temple Square. What role does the rich and new culture play in the neighborhood? We'll find out.

Join us for an experience through the diverse cultures (and infrastructure) of North Hill. We'll visit Family Grocery for some chatpattey, navigate busy Main Street, visit the African Market for some dumplings, and we'll wrap it up with some chill time at Lynn's Pub.
