There's plenty to do there for young and old at Lake Anna in Barberton, Ohio. It's beautiful and peaceful, but it also comes alive for many Summer concerts, festivals and arts & crafts shows. I hope you enjoy the pictures! This first one is just shows the lake itself.

Lake Anna

The lake is 1 full mile around the edge and a favorite for walkers in the morning because of the wide, smooth sidewalk that goes all the way around it (and the strategically placed benches to rest on!).

LakeAnnaWalkers

Families come out with kids and strollers to walk the grounds and get a lillte fresh air and sunshine.

Lake Anna Strollers

They take bread and feed the ducks and swans (don't get too close to the swans).

Feeding ducks

Children (and adults) also like to wade in the shallow water at the edge of the lake. It's clear enough to see tiny fish darting around sometimes. The lake has a bottom fed spring and is extremely deep however, so make sure they stay close to the edge!

Waders

Lake Anna has always had swans, and if they decide to glide in and let you have a better look, they're gorgeous!

Swans

The free concerts in the park sponsored by the Barberton Parks & Recreation always draw large crowds.

And of course, the Bathhouse has bathrooms in it.

If you want a quiet place to sit and contemplate life, there's always the memorial.

So what special event concert did I see out at Lake Anna? Elvis!

So, if you haven't been to Lake Anna in Barberton yet, it's a place you really should visit soon!

Hey Jim! Uh Huh Uh Huh! It's Elvis (Mike Albert www.mikealbertsings.com). There was a crowd of 6-7 thousand that came out for his concert at Lake Anna. I wrote another blog that has those pictures - made it local to Barberton if you want to see them. Hard to catch a moving target on film - LOL!

Hi Peter & Becky: Thanks for your comments - I used to take my kids in their strollers and walk around the lake. If you take a friend, it doesn't even seem like exercise.

It also is a great place to just sit by yourself to get away from everything and commune with nature, meditate or pray. Sometimes you just have to "clear the cobwebs" and center yourself. I hang out in warmer places in the Winter like the Panera Bread on Arlington by the fireplace. I just set up my laptop, and send cards to people.

Hi David! Thanks - my little pink Kodak Easyshare 8.0 camera is really getting a workout these days. I didn't take many pictures before I found SendOutCards (Kevin's usually the family shutterbug). I had to chase those swans halfway around the lake to get that picture. Merry Christmas!

You Know, sometimes when you think you've got a really good shot, someone walks into the frame accidently, and makes the picture even better. I liked this one a lot - solitary man.

Lake Anna is a true jewel - they have a Cherry Blossom Festival and a Mum Festival too.

My daughter lives close to this Lake. It is a beauty and a wonderful place to walk, see the flowers, concerts and cherry festival. We were there a couple of times this year but missed Elvis one of my favorites

Hi, I'm a student at the University of Akron and we're doing a small area plan on part of Barberton. I was just wondering if we may use your photos with credit in our planning book.

Thanks!

you forgot to mention the angling opportunities here. it is a great place to fish for bluegills and largemouth bass. using a berkely gulp minnow on a number 8 amberdeen hook, i caught 7 bluegill and 1 largemouth bass.

many think it's a horrible place to fish because of the visitors feeding them bread. however, the fish are much easier to catch,  because anyone with polorized sunglasses can see them swimming around. there are nice carp and bowfin in there also.

I was wondering if you could tell me when the arts and crafts show is this year? I am interested in getting a booth and also wanted to know if you could tell me how I go about doing this.

Thank you
