Canoe City has a long history of recreation. Early on, the park served as the site of Mahoning Park, a regionally-popular amusement park. Eventually, the amusement park closed and its structures dwindled away. Over time, however, the area became popular with canoeists. In part because of the need to portage around the Leavittsburg Dam, canoeists routinely attained permission from Ohio Edison to use the area as a stopping point along their treks up and down the Mahoning River. In 1984, a business person secured a lease from Ohio Edison to establish a private canoe livery on the northern section of the park. The operator referred to the establishment as Canoe City and constructed a wooden building to house the canoes where the business operated for some time. In June of 1993, Ohio Edison donated its N. Leavitt Road property to MetroParks and retained an easement for its substation facility.
