Location Grand Rapids, Ohio

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.[1] The park also contains the Issac Ludwig Mill which was built in 1866 over a two year period. The mill was originally a sawmill running off of a water wheel, then later was converted to a grist mill in the 1880s which ran off of water turbines. Today, it functions as a living museum. The park is connected by a walking trail to Bendview Metropark and Farnsworth Metropark.
