2 Park is located in the heart of downtown Akron, just west of Canal Park, the new home of
the Akron Aeros, the AA Minor League affiliate of the Cleveland Indians. Lock 2 of the
Ohio & Erie Canal played an important role in the development of Akron as a city in
the 19th century. In fact, the federal government has recognized this area as a historic
district, part of the National Heritage Corridor.
