Cuyahoga Falls

Cuyahoga Falls, city (1990 pop. 48,950), Summit co., NE Ohio, on the Cuyahoga River; inc. 1836. On its course through the city the river drops 220 ft (67 m) through a series of falls and rapids. A suburb of Akron, Cuyahoga Falls is both residential and industrial, with factories that manufacture metals, rubber, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and machinery. The city greatly expanded its area by annexing Northampton township in the 1980s. A state park is to the north, and the nearby Blossom Music Center is the summer home of the Cleveland Orchestra.
