Towpath Trail Peace Park Rules and Regulations

second campers at the peace park

1. No Trespassing on neighbor's property! Our neighbors don't have a problem with our offering primitive camping, but they do have a problem with people on their land at 3 AM and frankly, WILL call the Sheriff and or otherwise protect their property if they think anyone is a potential threat!

Our boundary line runs through the center of the canal from the 12" 6 " Wheeling & Lake Erie Railroad bridge to our pump house and to the lower driveway easement.

picnic shelter trash can on towpath trailOur Peace Park Rest Area idea came about from my brother Marc sending me a picture of a really nice single table shelter that is on the towpath trail in Cuyahoga Valley in the Boston Mills region. Since our property is located at the intersection of the Greenville Treaty line and the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail, we saw it as an opportunity to share the history of the American Revolution era Fort Laurens which was also referred to within the treaty. Fort Laurens is located about 1.5 miles east of our trail location. We also thought even if we started out with a single picnic table, it'll compliment our Towpath Trail Snack Shack. Upon sharing the idea publicly in social media, everyone seemed to like and give encouragement to pursue it. Pretty much on day one, my brother Marc who bikes the trail with his family donated a park quality picnic table. BAM, park established, thank you Marc

The Peace Park is located at our historical intersection which includes: the Greenville Treaty line, The Ohio-Erie canal, the Wheeling & Lake Erie Railroad, Ohio & Erie Canalway. National Scenic Byway route 212 section, the Buckeye Trail, and also the Ohio & Erie Canalway Towpath Trail. Our family is willing to donate additional land than we did with the easement agreement we signed and submitted in May 2016 which allowed the last remaining gap in the towpath trail to be developed in 2020.
