The 100-acre Olentangy Park is a true resource for the people and wildlife of Worthington. In the springtime, this is a wonderful park for observing spring wildflowers. Fall colors are also magnificent on the old trees that line the river. At one time, this was a major route of transportation for Native Americans. The park is also home to deer and beaver populations.
The Olentangy River Parklands boasts more than two miles of bikeway that wind along the Olentangy River, shaded by large sycamore trees. This is a popular trail used often by those who love to bike, jog, in-line skate, or just leisurely walk while enjoying the scenery. In addition, small neighborhood parks pocket the trail containing playgrounds and a variety of amenities.
In Spring 2013, an access point to the Olentangy River for boaters and kayakers was created. The access point is located off the gravel path between the lower parking lot and tennis courts. The project was a collaboration between the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR), Worthington Parks and Recreation, Ohio State University’s School of Engineering, and the Friends of the Lower Olentangy (FLOW). ODNR funded the project, which was constructed on ODNR property.
