The beautiful Canal Park, once owned and cared for by the Pickaway County Historical and Genealogical Society is now cared for by the Pickaway County Park District. It sets along side of the Scioto River and can be accessed off of Canal Road in Circleville, Ohio.
It has a large open shelter that can be reserved for picnics and other events by calling the Pickaway County Park District office at 740-420-5451.
Towpath Trail can be walked that is approximately 2 miles long going south from the park along a levy that travels beside the old Ohio-Erie Canal and Canal Road and eventually running along side both the Scioto River and the canal. Take some caution in walking the south end of the trail as the 2018 spring flood has eroded part of the trail.
