Have had friends get married amongst the roses. Also, we enjoy walking the gardens & through the park . Wish we had time to go more often. Very beautiful & serene.
This is a very nice and well kept park. I usually go to see the roses and the color displays are quite nice to see. It cost nothing to go to the park. There is also a pavilion for entertainment.
We were married right under the trestle pictured in 1988. We celebrated our 25th Anniversary by having a picnic lunch under the same. Year round the grounds are beautiful. We go back a few times each year. Very peaceful.
This park is very pretty and dog friendly. In fact, there are usually quite a few dogs here. There are tennia courts, a trail along the river, a pond, and the rose garden, which is very very pretty.

There are many places to park and to sit through out the gardens, and the attached walking trails and paths are well groomed, well-lit, and lovely. This... More
easy to get to, just off high st. N of Clintonville section of Columbus. good parking, or even better, it's just off the Olentangy bike trail. free concerts Sunday nights in the summer, at the gazebo, and on Saturdays, don't be surprised to see a wedding or two. don't get me wrong, it's not Butchard Gardens in Victoria, but its...

We come to Columbus about once every two or three years for a mini vacation. The first day we drive past this park to White Castle, pick up a bag of sliders and onion chips, return to the park and sit here enjoying the roses and the burgers. What a great day to pass a few hours. Plenty rose and... More
