We had just moved to Canton and found the park by accident. We were trying to find a spot to enjoy our takeout dinner (picnic) and parked the car and noticed people walking out of the woods. So we took a stroll and found a beautiful hiking path with benches and beautiful trees and flowers. It opened up into a huge field where we came back to, and later flew our kite there. Who knew?

With COVID-19 restricting my travels, I’ve decided to explore sites and sounds near my home! It’s very well kept, with lots of space to roam. There is a children playground. I took a walk along a path that extends about 3/4 mile in length. There are benches and tall trees to keep the hot sun away. You walk over The Etowah R on a bridge. I highly recommend this park.

This is an excellent park for running. There are nice bathrooms at the parking. The path goes in one direction out-and-back 3.5 miles, and you can run about .5 mile to the adjoining Heritage Park, which has a mile loop.

My husband and I have been here a number of times. Great place for riding a bike or walking. Mostly flat surface. Kid and dog friendly and a clean park.
Canton offers a few nice parks. Some I would rather have someone with me but Etowah River Park pretty open and I feel safe walking alone. It’s very nice.

This is a very dog friendly walk. It is now connected with Heritage Park which is also dog friendly so it's a good 2.5 mile loop. Nice small walk through woods connects parks. All concrete walks!

I like when a place has ample free parking. They have a bathroom facility instead of porta-johns. And a nice area for kids to play on jungle gyms etc. In addition to walking trails. Very pretty in the fall. Nice leaves around. They have picnic tables and what looks like a stage and a lawn for concerts / events. While there's no street number with this listing, for GPS I used 220 Brown Industrial Pkwy for the address of the Driver Services of GA bldg on the same street and just kept going past it to where the road dead ends right into the park entrance. Easy to find.

The park is usually very clean and large enough for walkers and bikers. I gave it only 4 stars because the canoe launch area is filled with mud, very unpleasant. Not a easy place to launch a canoe. The mud is so deep your feet actually sinks into the mud.
The actual park is fun but be cautious of all the soccer players, we have caught them urinating near the back trees. Not a very pleasant sight.

This is a great park for family. Lots walking trails and playgrounds for kids. Very clean and well maintained. Lots of parking. Look out for big events held here, there seems to be areas for concerts and food trucks. Really nice place.
