Boat rides canceled in Canal Fulton

Beacon Journal staff report

CANAL FULTON: Canal boat rides aboard the St. Helena III have been cancelled for Wednesday and Thursday.

According to a news release from Keri Lantz, program director for the Canal Fulton Canalway Center, the decision was made because of high water in the Tuscarawas River and the risk for additional flooding.

Sections of the Ohio & Erie Canal Towpath Trail have been closed in the area due to flooding. St. Helena Heritage Park in Canal Fulton is expected to be underwater by Wednesday afternoon, Lantz said.

The Canalway Center also will be closed Thursday. It is expected to reopen Friday, along with the resumption of rides on the St. Helena III.

The replica canal boat departs for hourlong horse-drawn rides along the Ohio & Erie Canal at 1 and 2:30 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays in the summer and early fall.

For more information on the status of the park and the rides, go to or call 330-854-6835.
