Each time I visit Columbus we are on the lookout for outings that I can take my mom who is an amputee and wheelchair limited. We were able to bring a picnic lunch and wheel her easily lakeside so she could enjoy her lunch and seeing the geese that she so enjoys. Next time we are going to hit those... More

4 mile multi-purpose, paved trail. Quite a few other walking trails, picnic areas, reservable shelters, Schrock Lake. What's not to like? Good place to mingle with an international crowd. Of course, that is what is great about Columbus, many different people all getting along.

Our friends live nearby to Sharon Woods and we had the opportunity to hike the trail system one day and bike it later in the week. Beautiful wooded trails made exercise fun even in the heat of summer! Not too crowded and the pond is fun to look at the birdlife!

This park has some very nice walking trails and also has a nice pond. The picnic areas are also top notch. I wish it was closer to my house, I would go there more often.

Beautiful park, with amazing wildflower fields. Great for an evening walk and to dragonfly or bird watch. Great for kids.

Long paths that are graveled, benches and trash cans available along the paths. Signage telling you what plants and animals are common in the area. Play grounds, picnic areas with and without shelters, grills, large areas to play ball, a gorgeous lake. I only experienced the paths at the very end of the park. To experience this park one would...
