Owner description: This beautiful five-acre park is the centerpiece of historic Olde Gahanna. Best known for its lovely waterfall, the park invites visitors to stroll the walkways, enjoy a nostalgic picnic, take a paddle boat ride, fish, or wade in the delightful water of the meandering Big Walnut Creek.

I love this area! I have been here several times for the view and for the food served in this area. We go to the Old Bag of Nails and try to hit it on a Wed. for their all you can eat shrimp. Then we walk the Park area behind it. It's fun to watch the ducks and swans. Usually get photos at the waterfalls and run around the paddle boat area. In the winter, they have it set up at Christmas time with a little village scene. Great to see any time of year.

If you are in the Columbus, Ohio metropolitan area and have some time you should make it a point to visit Creekside in Gahanna. It's a natural setting along a creek with a 9 hole golf course, paddle boats, a waterfall and many restaurants and shops. As of this writing the underground parking at Creekside is free and the area is about as safe and family friendly as you can get. There is live music every Friday evening in the summer thru the month of September and for some reason Gahanna seems to have a burger joint, pizza joint, bar, fish joint or ice cream parlor on every corner in the downtown area. There are many choices and much fun to be had. There is a Bag of Nails, a sports bar named Coaches and another named Signitures that are noteworthy. Come and visit and have fun. But be sure to observe the rules and don't speed as the Gahanna Police are very professional and don't take any guff!

I live two minutes away from here, it is a great place to stroll, take pictures and hangout. They are building a new restaurant, hopefully it will be reasonably priced. At Christmas, the lights are fun. I wouldn't drive too far out of my way to come here, but if you are close by, it's definitely worth a visit.

I love this area. It's so beautiful and peaceful and in the summer there is a lot to do including the Gahanna Blues & Jazz Festival. I love bringing the kids to watch the ducks and take a stroll on the nature paths. Also a beautiful place to take family portraits, engagement pics, and senior pics!
Wish this area was here when I was growing up.
