This park is great for festivals and it ends there. I was once chased by a homeless man and I just kinda brushed it off. Weird things happen in the city. A few months later, a stranger propositioned me for a sexual encounter. I didn't go back for a good six months and when I decided to go with a... More

Took a nice stroll along the inner circle. We passed gazebo and snapped a few photos. Saw interesting sign poetry on Sundays. Then continued walking and saw a small mound with elephants on top spraying water with trunks. We stopped around 9 am Sunday and there plenty of walkers, walkers with dogs, runners and ducks. Ample seating benches to relax... More

This is a lovely surprise so near the city. It's a nice quiet place to watch the squirrels play or visit the pond with the elephant fountains. There's also a few playgrounds for kiddos to burn some energy.

Goodale Park is at it’s best when it hosts community festivals. It is downtown and not spectacular but a park to visit when you are near the convention center.

This is my favorite park in Columbus! The setting is wonderful: beautiful pond, historic homes, view of downtown, steps to the Short North or Arena District.

This is arguably the best park in CMH if you like feeling like you're in a big city. It's dog friendly, expansive and well kept. Once a year they have the ComFest (Community Festival) and it is a free-for-all blast. Daylight hours are fine for family, but afterdark should only be for adults. There are very interesting people everywhere you... More
