The City of Norwalk truly is “the best little city” in Ohio. Located one hour west of Cleveland, one hour east of Toledo, two hours north of Columbus, and two hours southeast of Detroit, Michigan, Norwalk’s central location is an asset for business growth and distribution.

The real strength of Norwalk relies on the central premise that a strong work force and strong families make a strong community. Four school districts, over two dozen religious institutions, and a dozen fraternal organizations and service groups offer their resources to our citizens.

Leisure activities for the Norwalk community include the Summit Motorsports Park holding national drag racing competitions, 394 acres of publicly–owned open space, including 172 acres of scenic reservoir within 15 parks, and twenty minutes to the north of Norwalk, the nationally known Cedar Point Amusement Park and the Lake Erie Islands.

TIP For the Month! If you have a live Christmas tree, think about planting it next month. Choose its planting site now and dig the hole. Cover the hole with a tarp and store the soil in pails where it won't freeze. You can plant the tree after Christmas even if the ground is frozen.
