Canal Park Playground & New Signage

The Park District is moving forward on the first phase of completing our Master Plan for Canal Park, our Playground! The District is excited to share the master plan for the playground with the residence of Pickaway County.

As of November 11th the construction at Canal Park for the new playground has begun! Site prep is the first step in this process and this will include the construction of a handicap accessible ramp and earthwork to correct drainage issues. after the fill dirt arrives the earthwork will begin. It is expected that the site will be under construction for several weeks. After the playground sites work is complete a contractor will be building phase one of the playground, which includes the decking and rail around the platforms that will become a tree fort, and platforms for the start of the zipline. during this time period we will also be repairing the shelter house. We ask that you avoid the main parking lot during construction. Expect the shelter house closure at the end of the month for repairs. Please do not park in front of the gate as it will be used as an entrance for the equipment. Please use the Canal Road Pickaway Trailhead parking lot and the South End Towpath Trail Parking lot to access the trails.

We are also excited to share that we have new Interpretive signage out at canal Park!
