Tam O’Shanter Park

5055 Hills & Dales Rd. NW, Canton, OH 44708

Status Alert: 2024 Construction and Improvements

Parking lots are aging and the layout doesn’t serve park patrons as well as it could. A Clean Ohio site improvements grant will fund 75% of the cost to upgrade the entrance and parking. Crews will be staking out areas for revised parking lots and driveways, removing and relocating vegetation, and performing some initial grading. The parking lot and driveway construction is anticipated to start this summer and the first phase to be completed by the end of the year. Expect changes to current parking availability as well as changes to some of the temporary trail routes. Jackson Township is beginning construction of the ballfields at Schuring Park. For safety, the green trail will be rerouted to avoid the construction area. Please stay away from the construction area and temporary fencing. Long-term, this area will provide for parking and a future picnic shelter.

Open Daily: All parks are open 24 hours a day, unless otherwise posted.

Using Clean Ohio funds, the former golf course is the 15th park in our system and features four miles of hiking trails using portions of the cart path.  Stark Parks acquired the first phase of the Tam O’ Shanter Park in Dec. 2018, encompassing 94 acres and a second phase in 2019. A partnership with Jackson Township Parks will allow for active recreation to be created in a 40 acre space near Fulton Dr.

The park is open daily for hiking and nature and wildlife viewing.  Fishing (or catch and release fishing) is available at the pond next to the main entrance and parking area.  Catfish, bass, bluegill, and crappie have been stocked in the pond.  Use this form to be added to the email list for park updates.

The Tam O’Shanter Shelter is nestled among trees overlooking several views of the park.  It is perfect for a party of up to 110 people. The open-air shelter is equipped with electricity, picnic tables, ADA picnic table, and two charcoal grills.  Parking and a portable restroom are located near the shelter.
