Cleveland Metroparks Visitorís Center


This recently completed facility features the industrial history of Cleveland with an emphasis on transportation including the Ohio and Erie Canal. Located here is the McNally Diorama. This is a model of the Cleveland Weigh Lock placed here by the Canal Society of Ohio in honor of one of its members, the late Edith McNally.

From the center a short walk down the hill brings you to the towpath trail of the old canal. From this point the trail may be followed in a southerly direction to the Cuyahoga Valley National Recreation Area. Work is in progress to extend the trail to the north to the original canal terminus.
