City of Akron to Extend Hours at Summit Lake Community Center for the Weekend to Serve as Warming Center

Akron, Ohio, December 20, 2022 — Beginning this Friday, Dec. 23 and continuing through Monday, Dec. 26, Summit Lake Community Center (380 W. Crosier St.) will be open from 8:00am - 7:00pm to serve as a warming center for those residents who are in need. All other community centers will be closed for the holiday weekend.

"The forecast is calling for a significant drop in temperatures for the holiday weekend and we want to offer folks a place to go who may not have anywhere else to warm up for the holiday," said Mayor Horrigan. "Understanding that many public spaces may be closed for Christmas, we’ve opened up a center close to the emergency overnight shelter so residents can get out of the cold and enjoy some comfort and holiday spirit for the weekend."
