Mother Gooseland - Mother Gooseland was once the most popular park for small children and families in the City of Canton. The park boasted a petting zoo, fairy tale themed play equipment, and other activities for young children. Due to budget cuts and maintenance challenges associated with live animals, the park was shuttered in the mid 1980's and fell into disrepair. Calls for the park's revival continued and attempts were made to develop a revitalization plan in the mid 1990's and early 2000's. In 2013, Canton Parks and Recreation developed a new, modern master plan for the park in conjunction with multiple community partners to help bring the park back to a safe and user friendly condition.
