Year in Review
Who We are


The Zoar Wetland is located in northern Tuscarawas County near the historic Village of Zoar.  It is a natural wetland ecosystem with a 30-acre shallow marsh and 50 acres of woodland.  Our volunteers maintain two miles of trails and all other interpretive features. Our mission is to interpret the history and natural features of the Zoar Wetland through education and recreation

Current Events

2015 is promising to be a year of accomplishment as we finalize plans to give our picnic pavilion an extreme makeover.  The Historic Zoar Brewery Wine Cellar Preservation and Pavilion Improvement Project is scheduled to begin this spring and be completed by August.

Wetland Profile

The volunteers, donors, and Trustees of the Zoar Wetland have worked for 16 years to improve the park for all of our visitors.  We know that having a place where one can connect to the sights and sounds of nature in their own neighborhood is important.  A short walk on a shady trail with birdsong is one of the simple joys to lift the spirits.

The wetland is an easy drive from the communities of Dover/New Philadelphia, Bolivar, Zoar, and the Canton area.  Our trails are short and easy to walk for all ages and abilities. 

Have a lunch hour?  Come relax in the shelter or take a short walk. 
Want to finish that book? Bring a chair and relax undisturbed in the shade of trees. 
Need to train for a marathon? jog our wide trails. 
Need to entertain the kids for an afternoon? Bring a yard game or fishing poles and take your time. 
Need some quiet time to process a personal issue? step into the woods and relax on a trail bench to figure it out. 

Whatever your need you can come to the wetland and enjoy the beauty of nature close to home.

Wetland open year round, dawn to dusk.  Please, no vehicles on trails and no overnight camping
