description

Measuring nearly 600 acres in size, Canton's Lakeland Park is a prime

example of the possibilities involved in restoring ecological integrity to strip

mining sites. Much of the park's terrain is tallgrass prairie habitat. In those

sections which have been allowed to restore themselves, grassland birds such

as meadowlark, sparrows, Red-winged Blackbirds, American Woodcock,

Bobolink, and others frolic in the prairie wildfl owers. Look also for butterflies

and dragonflies, especially within those grassland sites adjacent to the lakes.

Residents and visitors alike can take advantage of the park's five lakes, hardsurfaced

walking/biking trails, boat launching facilities, fishing piers, and lake

overlooks. Another favorite pastime among locals is “catfish feeding” from

the chute bridge between Bond and Fitch lakes. Small bags of catfish food are

sold at the concession stand.
