Lake O’Springs – is a 26-acre lake created in 1920 on a tributary of Sippo Creek and was the inspiration of building the 155-acre lake, Lake Cable, to the south. Lake O’Springs served the Canton community as a popular place for fishing, swimming and other recreation until it closed in 2008.  However, the lake is now being developed with a group of 25 single family residences on its southwest side and is in the process of becoming one of Ohio’s newest private residential lakes.

Lake – Lake O’Springs allows swimming in designated areas and allows boats and kayaks, however, the lake only allows electric motor engines up to 2 hp. Anglers will find several species of fish and residents will be able to experience a quiet and peaceful lake to enjoy recreational boating. New residents will all gain lake rights and access as the lake is further developed and lots are sold.

Nearby Activities – With such a great location, residents at Lake O’Springs will be able to enjoy several local activities. Canton itself is famous for being home to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, as well as the McKinley Presidential Library and Museum and the Canton Classic Car Museum. Residents will also be able to drive a short distance to the nearby Portage Lakes for additional boating and skiing opportunities. With Akron being so close-by members of the community will also be able to enjoy the conveniences of big city living
