The city of Massillon, Ohio is located in the Canton metropolitan area.
Massillon is good for those who need a quiet atmosphere, as the streets are reasonably calm - however some parts can be quite loud, especially close to one of the railway lines. Parks are distributed sparsely, which results in them being occasionally challenging to access from a lot of locations within the city. Still, there are about 30 public green spaces nearby for residents to enjoy, such as Regis Perry Park.
The substantial percentage of single detached homes in the housing stock of Massillon is an important part of its character. The median year of construction for dwellings in this city is 1973. This part of the Canton metropolitan area also has quite a good choice of housing size options; it is quite easy to find houses ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms. Home owners occupy around three quarters of the units in the city while the rest are rented.
