About Sippo Lake

The Exploration Gateway at Sippo Lake Park is a center of nature, culture, and life-long learning established in June 2007 as a partnership between the Stark County Park District and the Stark County District Library. The facility includes three banquet and meeting rooms, a video conference center, the Perry Sippo Branch Library featuring a 58,000-item collection with specialized nature and Canalway history resources, an outdoor terrace and indoor fireplace, drive-through book drop, 400-gallon aquarium, wireless internet access, and public computers.

The Stark County Park District and Stark County District Library-Perry Sippo Branch share more than a building. Staff members work together daily to demonstrate a commitment to education, the environment, community outreach, and stewardship of financial resources that make this partnership unique.

The Sommer Wildlife Conservation Center and the Public Safety/Operations departments are located at the Genoa Avenue entrance (798 and 800 Genoa Avenue Northwest, Massillon, 44646).

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.

Restrooms on site.
