A nice, tranquil park to stroll through on the paths, find a shady spot to sit and read, bring the dog(s) to play, use the tennis courts, have a picnic in the gazebo near the pond, etc... Parking was easy and free on the street...More

Goodale Park is one of the cities older parks that is the middle of the Shirt North District. A relaxing day can be spent at Goodale Park. Great for family picnics with a lot of green space.

Very nice to have this park in the Grandview and Short North area. Beautiful park to walk and attend events in. Worth visiting if you are in the Grandview or Short North area. Also a great place to walk your dog.

Nice green space in the middle of the city! Nice walk from the downtown hotels in the theater district. Dog running around by himself when we were there which wasn't good. Seems to be a nice safe area.

It was nice to find some open green space to take a breather from the traffic hassle of downtown Columbus. There is parking on street and in the park. The pond with its fountain (not running in winter) is pretty. At least on a weekend...More

You may park in the park in one of the spaces by the recreation center. You can't get much closer than that. If the lot is full you are allowed to parallel park on Park Street along the east edge of the park or in a space on... More
