Columbus Metro Parks, Audubon Ohio, and the City of Columbus Recreation & Parks partnered to bring you the Scioto Audubon!
A real gem, the 94 acres in the heart of Columbus, the Scioto Audubon is nestled on the Scioto River bank on the Whittier Peninsula.
Five acres of wetland cells is dedicated to enhance wildlife habitat. Birding is very popular in this area and several species such as the blue-winged tail, wood ducks, egrets, pied-billed grebe, herons, American bittern and osprey have been seen.
Not into birding? That’s okay!
You’ll also find a lot of other things to do and enjoy such as:
- Fishing and boating
- Hiking Trails and Biking Trails
- Sand Volleyball
- Climbing wall
- Walking the nature trails
- 2 acres of dog parks for large and small dogs with agility courses
- Neos – an interactive electronic game
- Grange Insurance Audubon Center – a great educational center
The climbing wall is huge with 3 towers and 2 arches reaching 35′ and 6,100 square feet and it’s free to use!
More development is planned for the year 2012 and this definitely is a park worth visiting!
