Picnic, play, hike, and fish on 127 acres of water and rolling meadows at Petros Lake Park! You’ll find two covered picnic shelters, a sand volleyball court, a loop trail around the lake, and several short nature trails. Both shelters include picnic tables, grills, electricity, and horseshoe courts.

Reserve a Shelter

In the open prairie landscape you may see grey headed cone flowers and black-eyed susans in bloom. Along the trails you’ll be shaded by large hardwood trees such as shagbark hickory, red oak, black oak, black cherry, and hawthorn.

Named for the family on whose land it was built, Petros Lake was designed to funnel rain water away from the nearby Timken Faircrest Steel Plant. The area opened as a park in 1987.

Dogs welcome! Just remember that dogs must be leashed at all times, and owners must dispose of pet waste properly.

Fishing and carry-in boats are permitted, but ice fishing and skating are not permitted due to unstable ice conditions.
