Very clean and relaxing. Nice park to walk through, quiet and very groomed. The bike path had some serious bikers, look out for those blind curves. Close to hotels and relaxing sitting by the river.

Definitely worth a stop for a relaxing walk around the river. It is a nice place to explore. Make sure to get to the Supreme Court building to check out the gavel statue and hang out in the swings

A really great walk along the Scioto river. Get a great view of downtown Columbus, Ohio. Well kept walkway and woods.

My Daughter and I visited The Scioto Mile area one afternoon. This area of downtown Columbus Ohio is great for an outdoor day with the family. This area is very well upkept and the trail goes along way. You can rent bikes or scooters or just sit in the grass and have a picnic. You can also get some really great photos of downtown columbus in the background. You can also sit along the pathside on some benched or swings they have placed. You can walk solo, as couples or with your kids and just enjoy the great outdoors.... take your kayak and paddle down the scioto river

Beautiful view, Large pathways

We easily found parking on Sunday afternoon on the promenade area for free, not sure where we would've parked otherwise. Only spent 25 minutes walking here while in between downtown activities. Picturesque layout and overloop of the river. Nearby building were recently rioted and have boards and grafiti covering the faces which was sad and distracted from the beauty. Too many people on scooters zooming past and several homeless people. Don't leave valuables in your car, be mindful of your surroundings, and watch your elbows so you don't get knocked into by scooters.

Such a great place for a walk or run! Super peaceful & plenty of distance for 2-way traffic. A beautiful view of the city! Would also be the perfect spot for a picnic or a lunch break!

A Nice Walk in May
May 2019
There is more to this site than simply a mile walk. There are actually several miles of well-maintained hiking paths. While taking them, you can see a good view of downtown Columbus. There is also an extremely amazing and quite large fountain. During summer months there are several ongoing events, ( including music and dining ). Bikers can also this wonderful destination. A portion of the "Mile" offers excellent viewing of the Scioto River, gardens with plenty of benches. Wear comfortable shoes.

The area was so clean and very well maintained I would hope to pass by here again! It’s definitely good for running,walking and biking! It probably looks gorgeous during the summer time but it was fall and the leaves changed colors!
