The Towpath Trail Peace Park is located where the Greenville Treaty Line intersects with the Ohio-Erie canal towpath trail just west of the village of Bolivar, Ohio. The Greenville Peace Treaty specifically refers to Fort Laurens and runs from Greenville, Ohio on the west side of the state to about a mile and a half to where the Sandy creek enters the Tuscarawas River and from there north to Cleveland, Ohio. Fort Laurens is located only 1.5 miles east of the Peace Park on the towpath trail and we encourage everyone to hike there to visit. The Canal Lands section of the towpath trail has been adopted by the Bolivar-Zoar Rotary club who does a great job of helping the Tuscarawas Parks and Recreation to maintain the trail from Fort Laurens to Route 800.


Here's a very well-produced video by the Ohio Historical Connection of the story of Fort Laurens that's only 20 minutes long. It is also the story of how Ohio became settled shortly after the American Revolution and became the 17th state admitted to the Union on March 1st, 1803
