Canalway has been building connections for more than 35 years.

During this time, we have advocated for public trails and spaces, hosted free events and partnered with organizations throughout the region to tell the stories and preserve the history of the Ohio & Erie Canal.

Help us continue this work! By donating time or money, you support the continued programming of the Towpath Trail and the development of projects like the redesign of Canal Basin Park. These projects connect people to place and make our communities more vibrant.

Heritage & History

When the canal was in operation, boats had to cross locks one at a time. Boats heading upstream had the right-of-way according to law.
