“Beautiful at any time of day ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Whether visiting during the day or under the lights at night, this location is always beautiful. This also marks the starting line for the Columbus Marathon. Great place to be.

“view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

Great view, with barely much more than water fountains for the kids, the beautiful view has kept my kids entertained at the scioto mile. The cafe is a wonderful addition that everyone can enjoy.

“This place is awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

What a great way to relax while visiting Columbus! This riverwalk is stunning! Best part about it are the swings that are located along the way. Sit back and relax and people watch. Half the city walks down this path! There is an excellent restaurant nearby (Milestone 229) with a kiddie fountain to play in.

“romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Go ahead, visit. You'll be glad you did. Fountains beckon, but don't let the kids run because they'll bust their noggins on the not-so-kind brick pavers. Wildlife dares to venture out from the abutting river areas, so you can see a great crop of buntings without even going outside the city limits. Take a sandwich, or snag something from one of the local restaurants or food carts. You can't go wrong.

“Beautiful way to experience the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I love to visit the mile. It's a perfect way to spend an afternoon if you can enjoy the weather. You can do as much or as little as you want. We've gone and just walked around enjoying the river, and other times we'll go and enjoy my girlfriend's favorite resturant (milestone 229). Even if you're not looking to spend you entire afternoon here, it's a great place to spot by and relax and enjoy good company and a beautiful view.
