Price Park is located at 1000 W. Maple Street and is the City’s most active park, comprising 18.5 acres. This park has much to offer to the public, including the fishing (catch and release) and duck pond, gazebo, four covered pavilions, a large playground, a one mile walking path, baseball field, two tennis courts, a basketball court, a sand volleyball court, and restroom facilities, as well as picturesque green space. Immediately across the street is the Civic Center.
On April 7, 2008 the City of North Canton passed Ordinance No. 21-08 establishing a rental rate of Forty Dollars ($40.00) and the policies for reservation of a picnic shelter. This rental fee is nonrefundable. Nonprofit organizations, with proof of nonprofit status, will not be charged the rental fee, but must still reserve the picnic shelter and obtain a rental permit. The Washington and Price 2 are the pavilions that are available for non profit organizations to use. Permits can be obtained at the Mayor’s office located at 145 N. Main St. between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm, Mon.-Fri.
The public is welcome to use all park facilities including the shelters; however, if a shelter is previously rented, those individuals with a rental permit do have priority.
Alcohol usage is not permitted in the city parks. View Map of shelter names and locations: Price Park Shelters Map
