Creekside Park

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.

Whether it's special events that are held in the area (Corvette and Custom Car show, Blues Fest, Creepside, etc), or just a free live music event, it's a cool place to go.
We walk there and hang out, get some dinner, walk around, have some ice cream, watch the ducks swim around, just relax in general.

Could use a few more restaurants in the area just to add a little more variety, but overall, still a quant little area.

Inniswood Metro Gardens

Reviewed By Thomas B - Westerville, Ohio

I try to visit Inniswood a couple of times every week to take a walk and take photographs of the changing scenery and flowers. The staff does a great job at maintaining the various areas and the beautiful flowers. Weekends are always very busy, but weekdays can be quiet at times although even weekdays can be busy. I can always find some quiet spots though. My favorite areas are the Boardwalk Trail, the Spring Run Trail and the secret Garden.

Very pretty walk in the woods. Trails are kept fairly clean. Signs are good to point out interest and direction. Some exertion required on the uphill path.

It was a nice smallish neighborhood park and a playground too. A small parking area, but mainly it's for locals in the neighborhood. It was clean and maintained nicely.

Gahanna Woods State Nature Preserve

Founded in 1973, Gahanna Woods State Nature Preserve is a successful effort to save one of the last remaining large stands of woods in central Ohio. The preserve is both a nature lover and bird watcher’s dream, with rare species of vegetation, including some of Ohio’s most exceptional wildflowers, and rarely-seen wildlife. Consisting of more than 50 acres, the preserve offers plenty of scenic hiking trails and areas for picnicking.

Reviewed By Chris2200 - Columbus, Ohio

Gahanna Woods is actually 2 parks in one because the east side is a wetlands preserve and the west side is a walking park. Both sides may be hiked but bikes, dogs and other domesticated animals are not permitted on the wetlands preserve because they would disturb the natural habitat. The west side has nice trails for walking and walking with pets. By making a loop within a loop, approximately 5 miles of trails can be walked without crossing over too much of the same terrain, but shorter loops are definitely available.

Took family to see the Nutcracker on Christmas Eve. Beautiful theater, kind and pleasant staff, terrific acoustics, easy parking (I actually parked on a close flat lot which was free on Sundays rather than under the Statehouse). The show was terrific! This might become a new family tradition.

This was established years ago. I went here to shop and learn about 15 years ago and it was the best free herb education I have been to. The lady in charge was so nice and knowledgable.

Blendon Woods Park

Reviewed By ThreeWiseMen1998 - Columbus Ohio

This park has horrible upkeep considering the park system brings in 25 mil/yr. The trails are muddy as the water sits on them. Fully understandable except this is an urban city park with plenty of money to fix the standing water problem. I would not recommend hiking anytime its not a drought.

Not allowed to have pets anywhere except the pet area which is a swamp from Jan to June.

Too many regulations to enjoy yourself in nature. If you're about freedom and enjoying nature I would visit another park.

Wagner-Hagans Auto Museum

We do not have regular hours. We do tours by appointment only.

Reviewed By DocHarrisHHI - Hilton Head, South Carolina

We found this on trip advisor and made arrangements with Steve to visit... In a nondescript part of German Village in a residential neighborhood sits this garage building with about a dozen 50's cars and other auto collectibles that the owner chooses to find and display... We spent about 30 minutes talking with him about the history of his collection and then headed to dinner... A truly small gem, both the collection and the individual...

Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens

Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Gardens is a premier botanical landmark and attraction featuring exceptional plant collections, indoor and outdoor gardens, seasonal art and nature-based exhibitions, and a dynamic array of events for visitors of all ages.

Reviewed By virginiagirl2018 - Christiansburg, Virginia

The Conservatory was fairly busy on this chilly Saturday. We began with the butterfly garden in the Pacific Island Water Garden. It was very crowded, as an employee was releasing new butterflies & explaining their life cycle. It made it difficult to navigate the exhibit. We only saw about 6 different types of butterflies, but those were fairly abundant. The North Conservatory with its Himalayan Mountains, Tropical Rain Forest, and Desert areas had a nice selection of plants. We also enjoyed the Chihuly glass exhibits in the various exhibit areas. We stopped for a snack in the Garden Cafe (chicken salad + greens), which was pretty good. It was very windy when we finished in the visitors center so we didn’t go to the outdoor areas. I look forward to seeing those if we visit in warmer weather.
