It’s imperative that we are all making our best effort to follow the guidelines that are currently being implemented to ensure our protection. Practicing social distancing, not going out if you’re sick, and not gathering in large groups are all effective ways and efficient tools to help end the spread of COVID-19. While engaging in these rules, it is still possible to find ways to enjoy the abundance of activities that are offered in Grove City.
To help make your quarantine experience better, we’ve compiled a list of activities that are either available to take home or safe to do at each location. This is the perfect opportunity to experience something new and support local businesses during a difficult time. Who knows, you might find your new favorite activity or business!

It’s important that we still find time to stretch our legs, get some fresh air and take in some sunlight! Get those steps in and cure your cabin fever by visiting a different park each day! Enjoy fresh air with a stroll 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!
