I got out of the house and did a bit of a solo road trip. This virus stuff has all of us a little stir crazy, but things are slowly opening back up (with proper social distancing of course), so I headed out. The Delphi Canal Park is a place I had circled on my map of more local places to check out, so I made it the last stop before heading home. The Interpretive Center and historic building where all closed and the canal boat wasn't running, but I had a nice walk out past the railroad track tunnel and all along the canal the other direction. It's a really interesting area and the historic little village is well done. I'll have to get back someday when it's all open to see it. There were people out walking and fishing, enjoying the warm weather.

Visited during Quarantine, so everything was closed. But the park and buildings look amazing! Loved learning more about the history of the Wabash & Erie canal.

We have visited the park and taken the canal boat ride before and would do it again. With just the ticket for the boat ride, one can visit all of the village (circa 1850 ish) buildings. A combo ticket enables one to also visit the museum. This is an amazing park, started in a small town by a small committee who wanted to save a portion of the Wabash and Erie Canal. They have done a superb job! The guide for the boat was knowledgable and friendly. It is definitely worth a trip to Delphi from anywhere in Indiana...

We were there for the annual celebration. Lots of stuff going on for all ages. Museum is worth seeing, village has nice variety of experiences, narrated tour bus with stories, and canal boat rides which are narrated also. Run by volunteers, it is wonderful. The story of how the canal came to be is matched by the story of its restoration. The visi9naries who did that have added much value to the area and to American hiatory.. Lots of little extra touches for celebration.

We lived in Delphi when this park was just getting started. It is awesome to see how far it has come and how much work and effort has gone into every aspect. It is a hidden gem and worth the visit. We just attended a wedding there and it was a great venue for an event like that. We have also been to a few graduation open houses there among other events.
