Who We Are

Located in Medina County, Westfield Township is part of the Cleveland/Akron metropolitan area. Founded in 1817, our community is rich in open space that includes agriculture, rural & residential communities and commercial & recreational areas.

Residents enjoy the beauty of rolling land and properties that offer room for growing families and small farms.

While maintaining our rural character, Westfield Township sits at the heart of two major highways, I-71 and SR-224/I-76, one of northeast Ohio’s major transportation intersections. Being just 40 minutes south of Cleveland and 30 minutes west of Akron gives residents easy access to career opportunities as well as local shopping, restaurants, hospitals and medical assistance.

In 2020, a new Fire & Rescue building was completed in Westfield Center to service the township with 24/7, on-call access. Consisting of 22 dedicated volunteers, daytime staff and a full-time Fire Chief, these men & women are friends & neighbors committed to responding when needed most.
