Painesville Township

Located in northeast Ohio on the shore of Lake Erie and bordered on its southern edge by the Grand River, Painesville Township is a suburb of Cleveland, just a 32-minute drive outside the city. It is home to 20,399 citizens and is part of Lake County. Though Painesville Township surrounds the city of Painesville, it is a separate entity. Within Painesville Township lie three municipalities: the village of Fairport Harbor, the village of Grand River, and the unincorporated community of Painesville-on-the-Lake.

Painesville Township is a wonderful place to raise a family due to its low cost of living, highly regarded public schools, and abundance of outdoor activities. The area’s feel is described as a suburban rural mix, and the median home value is $152,500.

For recreation, the Lake County Fair is held every August in Painesville Township, featuring harness racing, tractor pulling, and country music concerts. The township’s coastline proves to be its biggest strength. It is home to Headlands Beach State Park in its northwest corner, and Painesville Township Park in the north. Headlands Beach State Park is the most popular and longest beach in the state of Ohio and is known for its break wall, which is a popular spot for fishing, on the east side of the park. It also features the Fairport Harbor West Breakwater Light, a distinct white-walled and red-roofed square-shaped lighthouse. Painesville Township Park was established in the 1920s and has become a popular recreational area. It features a picturesque pier and a community center that is available to rent for events. The park also offers softball fields, a playground, and a picnic area. These two parks aptly display the natural beauty of Lake Erie and Painesville Township.
