About Sippo Lake Park

Sippo Lake Park was purchased in 1977 with a Community Development Block Grant because of its central location between two of Stark County’s major cities. It provides visitors with a variety of amenities, programs, and 202 acres of deciduous forest, wetlands, old fields, and mixed shrub areas. Featuring a variety of habitats for wildlife viewing, this quiet urban oasis is home to a large number of bird species, including blue herons and other waterfowl. The songs of spring peepers, frogs, and toads also enliven evening sunsets along the shoreline of the 100-acre lake. The bluegill, crappie, carp, catfish, yellow perch, and bass that make Sippo Lake their home often jump right out of the water in the lake’s early morning mist.
