This fundraiser is replacing the Canal Land’s annual “Canal Tavern 5k Walk & Run” for 2020. 100% of the profits raised from this event will go towards the maintenance and development of Canal Lands Park in collaboration with the Tuscarawas County Park Department. Participants must follow social distancing guidelines where appropriate, and the Committee has a safe operating plan in place for this event.
Attractions include the former Zoar Guard Lock and Slackwater Dam, the former Zoar Sawmill and Power Plant, the old Zoar Brewery, and more! If you have ever hiked Canal Lands Park and wondered “What is that?” this is the tour for you.
Sponsored by Roger Read & Sally Miller, Al & Maryann Fearon, Belvidere Electric, Canal Tavern of Zoar, and Whitemyer Advertising.
