  • Huge park with amazing views wherever you choose to explore. Prairies and forest areas all in the park, with plenty of trail options to choose from. The area near the Nature Center also has trails that go around bison observation areas. A great metro park just outside of Columbus to explore and enjoy some nature!
  • Love it here. We often take walks with our pets and kids, and trails are well cared for. The views are beautiful too!
  • This is the best Park in Columbus. It has a large nature center, bison, long trails, Hills, lots of river access, viewing platforms, and is huge. The biggest con is that it's difficult to find all of the different entrances and trails, even with the map.
  • Great metro park! Enjoyed the nature center and the trails. The bison are also pretty unique if you have never seen them. However I would not plan a trip around just seeing the bison. Its a park that's worth checking out.
  • A great Metro Park with a variety of trails and landscapes. The Nature Center has a superb "living river" display.
