About Sheffield Lake

Sheffield Lake runs along the Lake Erie shoreline about 20 miles west of Cleveland. While just 2.4 square miles, it boasts numerous amenities for families and outdoor enthusiasts.

In addition to easy access to the lake to watch stunning sunsets, launch a boat, or enjoy a picnic, the city has ten parks, five on the lakefront and has created miles of nature trails enjoyed by walkers or cyclists. 

Affordable housing for first time homeowners, growing families and retirees is a hallmark of this quiet, friendly residential community.

The city’s Joyce Hanks Community Center is a hub of activity for classes, organization meetings and special events. Opportunities for lifelong learning abound thanks to the Domonkas Library. The city’s children and teens may attend the Sheffield-Sheffield Lake Public School District or one of several private schools in the area. Lorain County Community College and the University Partnership is a short drive away and offers career training, associate, bachelor and master degree programs.
