Lake Anna

A natural geological lake left behind from the last ice age to sweep across north America, Barberton's pride and joy is Lake Anna. Lake Anna was named by Ohio Columbus Barber after his only daughter Anna Laura Barber. Today this 10 acre natural lake serves as the recreational center of Barberton. Many people come to walk or jog around the 21 acre park. The upper walk around Lake Anna is .7 of a mile while the lower circular walk is .5 of a mile. Lake Anna in Barberton is bordered by Park Ave, Lake Ave, Sixth Street, and Third Street. Things to see at Lake Anna include our gazebo where many summer band concerts are held, Barberton's War Memorial, and our W.W.I Cannon. There is plenty of parking around the lake and Lake Anna Park is proudly maintained by the Barberton Parks and Recreation Commission. Lake Anna is open from dawn until dusk
