Peace Park

  • 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 will be 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 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 2019.

    In May 2016. my family agreed to donate a 12'-20' section our our property frontage to the Ohio & Erie Canal-way Towpath Trail which was needed to close the last remaining gap between Tuscarawas county and Cleveland, Ohio. In Dec 2013 the Bolivar aqueduct McDonnell trail head was dedicated which brought the trail to the Tuscarawas-Stark county line. In 2016 the Bolivar trail was developed to about 20 feet of our property line. In 2019 the trail development will include our property to the Wheeling & Lake Erie 12' 6" Railroad bridge and from the McDonnell trail-head to the bridge. In 2019, the bridge shelter and two sections will be joined.

    The about section is broke down to focus on either "About the Snack Shack" and "About the Peace Park" that we may include specific information about how each evolved.
