About Petros Lake Park
Opened in May of 1987, construction of Petros Lake began two years earlier to funnel rainwater away from the new Timken Company factory on Faircrest Street. The 94-acre park was named for the family on whose land the lake was built. Since then, the Stark County Park District has built two covered picnic shelters, a sand volleyball court, a horseshoe court, a 1.2-mile hiking trail, and three nature trails.
Primarily open grasslands, a habitat restoration project currently underway is transforming this former farm into a prairie. Walk along the trails to see prairie plants such as grey-headed coneflowers and black-eyed Susans and large hardwoods such as shagbark hickory, red oak, black oak, black cherry, and hawthorn.
Fishing is permitted, view the boating and fishing guide here for a complete list of regulations. Ice fishing and skating is not permitted at Petros Lake Park due to unstable ice conditions.
Petros Lake Park also includes three multi-use sports fields managed by the Perry Baseball Association.
