A non-profit cultural heritage organization, Canalway works to share and preserve the story of the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area. We advocate for projects and programs that honor our collective history, create public spaces and build connections.
Over the years, we have advocated for the completion of the Towpath Trail in Cuyahoga County, the building of a connective trail system, the creation and preservation of public green spaces, and the creation of historic districts in Cleveland. Today, Canalway programs the Towpath Trail and advocates for trail improvements and extensions as well as trail-oriented development around these community assets.
