It was a great place to eat our picnic lunches on the porch while watching the bikers on the towpath trail. There's interesting historical information inside of the visitors center and a small souvenir shop. It's also a great place to get on the towpath...More

This center is located neatly near the center of the park and likely you will pass by it around the middle of your tour. The most valuable thing for the center is the short, 10 minute (or so) video they play in the upstairs. It...More

This informative visitor centre serves as a fine entry to the Towpath Trail. We visited this site twice hiking:once going north in March, and once going south in August. The first time was nice, with occasional views of the Cuyahoga River and much gorgeous scenery;...More

You can collect 4 here. Average NPS Visitor Center. I'm eagerly awaiting the opening of the new and improved one down the street but it's good for stamps, info, and towpath trail access.

We stopped in to ask about the area. What should we see, eat, do, etc? They were very nice and took their time answering our questions. If you stop, don’t forget to get your passport stamped.

We enjoyed the exhibits. The building is from the canal area. It is right on the towpath so you can start a walk or a bike ride from the visitor center. You can pick up the park guide and get tips from the rangers. Restrooms...More
