Ghosts of Providence: Spooky Fun at the Canal, October 19 and 20


Providence Metropark is located in the real ghost town of Providence, Ohio, a once-booming community abandoned after a cholera epidemic, a devastating fire and the decline of canal traffic. As Halloween approaches every year, the spirits of the park’s past begin to stir.

The popular Ghosts of Providence Lantern Tour returns to the Canal Experience Friday and Saturday, October 19 and 20, with walks starting every 15 minutes from 7 to 8 p.m.

You’ll meet characters from long ago that dwell in the ghost town of Providence on this lantern-lit walk through the region’s most unique historic park.

This program is not recommended for children under 5.

Cost: $7. Reservations needed.
