Do not let Gahanna take away our state park for continued sub housing apartments! Gahanna needs to provide sidewalks for all community members to take advantage of beautiful state park. Gahanna says they have a 5 year plan for sidewalks to get to the park, but apparently this is not a priorty!!😢😢

Gahanna Woods was a nice find when I had some spare time in the area recently. When you turn off the road, the state nature area is to the east of the parking lot and the trails through the park are on the west. Don't drive past the parking lot as you will just have to turn around in a quarter mile or so at the locked gate to the city water tower. Lots of trails, woods, ponds, and plenty of seclusion. There were four other cars in the lot when we arrived, but two left. One guy was cleaning out his car and some woman was on her cell phone. She was still at it when we left after our walk. We didn't encounter anyone else during the entire time.

This protected State Nature preserve is one of the few remaining bogs. This is the perfect place to observe nature or simply relax and clear your troubles away! It is filled will flora and fauna that you are not likely to see at other parks in Ohio.

This charming little walk in the woods is on Taylor Station Rd. just north of Taylor. Pull into the parking lot immediately on your left because the road is blocked. There's a map of the trails, which are short. One trails starts here and two on the north side of the road. Trails are mulch, dirt, or grass, changing in mid path, and there are benches thoughtfully placed. There are wildflowers out in the sun - queen anne's lace, black eyed Susans, iron weed. Leashed dogs allowed.
