During a challenging spring, summer, and fall, you turned to trails and greenspaces to reinvigorate your mind, body, and spirit. The sense of isolation many of us felt at times was replaced by a feeling of hope as we heard a bird sing, felt a breeze on our face, or perhaps watched clouds pass lazily overhead.

Natural spaces fostered a sense of renewal as we connected with family and friends during walks, runs or bike rides. When the pandemic threatened our traditional events like RiverSweep, Cleveland History Days, Cycle Canalway, and the Towpath Trilogy, we recalibrated on how those events could be held in a fun and safe fashion for your enjoyment. Your enthusiastic response and participation in those reimagined events was incredibly gratifying.

There are several ways you can support Canalway Partners.
