Facilities to Rent
The City of North Canton offers three rental facilities, one being the North Canton Civic Center, another being Dogwood Park Shelter, and the other being Price Park Shelter.
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, three covered shelters, a large playground, a one mile walking path, one baseball field, two tennis court, one basketball court, one 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 will be nonrefundable. Nonprofit organizations, with proof of nonprofit status, will not be charged the rental fee, but must still reserve the picnic shelter.
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 take precedent for use of the shelter at their designated date and time.
The North Canton Civic Center is located adjacent to Price Park on West Maple at 845 W. Maple Street. The North Canton Civic Center is the former residence of Walter Mack and was purchased by the City in 1970. The grounds cover approximately 6 acres and feature mature Beechnut, Oak, and Maple trees with a beautiful gazebo to accent the landscape and architecture of the facility.
