Buckeye Greenbelt Parkway

Miami-Erie Canal Manhattan 

We’ve now pulled onto the Buckeye Greenbelt Parkway. The interesting history about the Greenbelt Parkway is its relationship to the Miami and Erie Canal. Today, motorists travel through the North End via the Parkway or head back and forth from Maumee and Toledo via the Anthony Wayne Trail but chances are few realize that the road they now drive on was built on top of what once was the Miami & Erie Canal. The photograph above shows the Miami and Erie Canal - Manhattan Extension in North Toledo in 1888. This is essentially where the Parkway sits today.

Pull over to the right-hand emergency lane at Cherry and the Parkway – with the plan to move straight through the intersection when you finish the next tour segment.
