Canal Days
Sunday, September 17, 2017

Canal Day is set for 12:00 noon at Canal Park by the Pickaway County Historical Society and the Pickaway County Park District.

Come and enjoy a free lunch being served at 12:00.

While your food is settling in, enjoy the displays of antiques and ancient artifacts by John Barnhart, historical photos of the old canal by Ken Speakman and other displays.
A hayride is tentative depending on how wet the ground is from the rain.


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.

A short history of the Canal Park can be found on the Pickaway County Historical Society’s website.
