Lock 3 Vision Plan
Lock 3 began as a pop-up concert venue along Akron’s Main Street. Over the years, it has evolved and now is known across the City as Akron’s ‘Central Park’. It is time to reinvest into Lock 3 and make it a permanent space for all Akronites to enjoy.
The Lock 3 Vision Plan is a critical component of the resident-led Akron Civic Commons 2.0 project. The plan is to build on the success of Lock 3 Park as an event, concert, and festival space and develop a year-round park that is a destination for residents, guests, hikers, and bicyclists along the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail.
