Organization Profile

Canalway Partners is a non-profit cultural heritage organization that serves as a catalyst for projects and programs within the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area in Cuyahoga County.

We exist to preserve the natural and cultural experiences of the Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area for the future by serving as a catalyst for projects and programs that connect people to place for the prosperity of all.


We accomplish this work by collaborating with strategic partners, acting as an advocate for the National Heritage Area, and increasing public education and experiences around the history, heritage and environment of our historic Canalway.

Throughout our 35 year history, Canalway has led the development of the Northern end of the Towpath Trail, initiated the development of Canal Basin Park and programmed acclaimed Cleveland events including The Towpath Marathon, the Towpath Trilogy and RiverSweep.

Canalway Partners and the Ohio & Erie Canalway Coalition work together on the promotion of Ohio & Erie Canalway National Heritage Area from Cuyahoga to Tuscarawas County.
