About this Location

Foster Park, at one time known as Canoe Trails Park, sits on 3 acres of serene lawns and woods in Newton Township between the Mahoning River and the lightly traveled East River Road/Newton Falls Damascus Road, which also serves as Bicycle Route J. Though it is MetroParks’ smallest open park, Foster offers an abundance and charm and serenity. The pleasantly landscaped park offers a pair of shaded picnic tables and fire rings, a portable lavatory, as well as the first river access point on the Mahoning River beyond the Lake Milton Dam.

Visitors can park in one of the 16 spaces available or take their vehicle and trailer down a paved driveway to a canoe launch at the riverbank. The canoe launch leads up from the ramp to the picnic area. A paved pathway continues from the picnic area to an arched footbridge before leading back into the main parking lot. Bicycle racks are also available.
