COVID-19 links and information.

Ontario, Ohio

We are a community with options as diverse as a larger city with the convenience & character of a small town.

Our schools, colleges, and universities bring excellent education to your backyard, including The Ohio State University, North Central State College, and vocational training for both high school students and adults already in the workforce.

Keep active with recreational offerings to fit each season. Marshall Park serves as the hub of local sports and the area showcases two ski resorts, lakes, and even a bike trail. Culturally you’ll have access to touring Broadway performances, art shows, festivals, and both national and local dining and shopping, including The Richland Mall.

Our residents are the backbone of the community; its strength and its greatest asset. Ontario continues to grow with a 17.4% growth over the last 10 years. Today, the City of Ontario is home to over 6,200 residents. Our community is fortunate to have not only the economic resources needed to foster the wide diversity of growth we experienced over the last several years, but also the support of our residents to make it happen.
