The Canal Fulton Canalway Center is a visitor and information center, located in northwestern Stark County along the Ohio and Erie Canal's Towpath Trail. Visitors can take a ride on the St. Helena III replica canal boat, learn about local history, and request information on things to do in the area. The Towpath Trail, the Heritage House and Olde Canal Days Museum, a picnic pavilion and playground are located close by in the park.
The St. Helena III canal boat is historically pulled by two Percheron horses and departs from the Port of Canal Fulton in St. Helena Heritage Park for a one hour ride down the Ohio & Erie Canal. A historian on board provides information on the history of the canal, the boat and the area. Click Here to view and purchase tickets to our upcoming tours.
Know Before You Go: We recommend arriving 30 minutes prior to your ride time to view the DVD presentation entitled "Our Canal Heritage" before you board the canal boat. In addition to public boat rides, the St. Helena III offers a variety of special themed cruises throughout the summer months.
Group Tours: Private group charters are available for 12-40 people by booking two or more weeks in advance. Please contact City of Canal Fulton Parks & Recreation Manager, Chris Bundy, email@example.com to book your group tour.
2023 Note: Some 2023 boat rides will be tractor pulled, while others that have enough advance notice and staffing will be horse drawn.
