Outdoor Escapes

As we navigate the seas of uncertainty, take heart knowing our community was born of hardworking, resilient people and we will continue to thrive once the waters are calm again. As we look for ways to spend our time safely during the coming weeks, find comfort in the Altogether Adventure® we are known for; enjoy the fresh air as you wander through the Gardens at Gantz Park; get a dose of vitamin K on a stroll at Henceroth Park; have a family picnic at Scioto Grove Metro Park; say “hello” to the bison at Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park; head to Breck Community Park so Fido can stretch his legs too! Make it a point to visit a different park each week as you work to shake off the cabin fever, all while being sure to observe social distancing for the safety of you and your loved ones. Inspire others to find unique ways to enjoy the solitude by tagging #AdventuresInSolitude on social.

Here is a list of outdoor activities and parks that are still open.
