Visited as part of a walking tour of the city. Really loved the man made lakes and covered bridge they installed. We visited in fall when the leaves were changing and the view of the bridge and foliage on the water was spectacular. The observation tower was a short walk away. I enjoyed the exercise more than the view but... More

It has everything: beautiful water features, hiking trails, biking trails, a huge hill for the kids to conquer, wide open spaces, a covered bridge, a climbing tower/overlook and wonderful views from every corner. We walked there from downtown in just a few minutes - and the... More

Great park with ample facilities, walking trails and open areas. t lunch the place had several picnickers. Runs beside the river with lots of features. Climb the tower, drive through the covered bridge, walk the river or just throw a ball and enjoy. A green space the people of Columbus should treasure.

Park is not too large. It is easily accessible by the road which traverses through it. Convenient attractive recreation for viewing the river, picnicking, lawn games, short hikes and short bicycle rides. Not too many would spend all day here but rather part of a day. Small children's play ground available. Although not a very big hill, the best winter... More

Met friends for a Sunday morning hike and had a great time. This park is scenic with a great trails system. We did a short 4 mile trek but you can go for miles from this park. The covered bridge and large oval lake make for beautiful photos. Lots of picnic opportunities and playground equipment for the kids. The river... More

Love packing up the family for a picnic. It's a great place for taking pictures as well with the garden tunnel, covered bridge and wooded paths.

The park has walking trails, a tower to climb and see all the city and river. The covered bridge is surrounded by modern architecture and there is spots for fishing and bikes even a place for motorized wheelchairs. The pond attracts Heron and is full of fish. The ducks love the park too. There is a fountain and Band shell,... More
