The Union Canal Tunnel Park includes 109 acres of meadows and woods surrounding the oldest transportation tunnel in the U.S. and 5/8 mile of watered canal. The Tunnel, a National Historic Landmark, was completed in 1827. Visitors can walk on the towpath once trodden by mules, picnic at the mouth of the tunnel, or climb the marked trails through the wooded hill adjacent to the canal. Boat rides on the canal and through the tunnel are available the second and fourth Sundays during the months of June through October. There are evening rides on nights when the moon is full.
