About Walborn Reservoir

Walborn Reservoir encompasses more than 2,000 acres and provides the perfect escape for Mountain bikers, equestrians, hikers, canoeists, and kayakers. Two miles of quiet trails travel through pine woods, brushlands, and oak and hickory forests. The reservoir was named for Dale Walborn, the mayor of Alliance from 1963-71, who initiated its construction.

You may spot wildflowers such as mayapple and trillium or such wildlife as white-tailed deer, wild turkey, osprey, bald eagles, and migratory waterfowl.

Under a cooperative agreement with the City of Alliance, Walborn Reservoir came under the jurisdiction of the Stark County Park District in 1998.
