The Wabash Cannonball Trail

The trail is a 63-mile multi-use recreational trail in Northwest Ohio. It provides non-motorized access to hikers, bikers, equestrians and cross-country skiers. The 12 foot wide trail surface varies within the different jurisdictions, from asphalt to hard packed cinder ballast. The trail is a part of the nationwide movement to rejuvenate former railroad corridors into linear parks where people can enjoy the beauty and solitude of the outdoors while also providing a safe alternate mode of transportation between towns and villages along the route. It is one of Ohio's longest rail-trails, traversing four counties: Fulton, Henry, Lucas, and Williams.

RECREATION

The Veterans Memorial Park is a public park located in downtown Whitehouse, Ohio that when completed will provide a solemn, beautiful space to remember and honor all those who have served in the armed forces of the United States of America. It also will recognize by name the area veterans who made the ultimate sacrifice during war times.

Veterans Memorial Park serves the entire Anthony Wayne area and is being constructed with funds from generous patrons.
