Providence Metropark is a regional park located near Grand Rapids, Ohio that is part of the Toledo Metroparks. The park contains mule-drawn canal boat rides on the Miami and Erie Canal and features canal lock 44, the only original functioning lock in the state of Ohio.
The park also contains the Isaac Ludwig Mill which was built in 1866 over a two-year period. The mill was originally a sawmill powered by a water wheel, then later was converted to a grist mill in the 1880s driven by water turbines. Today, it functions as a living museum.
The park is connected by a walking trail to Bend View Metropark and Farnsworth Metropark. Plan my Grand Rapids trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
