Scioto-Audubon Metro Park. August 22nd, 2009. I

A bit of nature in the center of the city.

In 2003, Audubon Ohio, Metro Parks, and the City of Columbus agreed to collaborate on a project to reclaim and restore 160 acres on the Whittier Peninsula along the Scioto River near downtown Columbus. Of this acreage, Metro Parks has created the 71-acre Scioto Audubon Metro Park. Visitors can enjoy birding, fishing, boating, hiking and jogging.

Audubon Ohio has begun construction on the Grange Insurance Audubon Center, which is slated to open in 2009.

When the redevelopment of the Whittier Peninsula is completed, the site will showcase the resilience of nature and the power of intelligent, conservation-minded development and design. It will demonstrate the possibility of revisiting and mitigating the effects of past development decisions made under different priorities. It will serve as a model of what cooperation and civic determination can do to revitalize a community and restore habitat.

The Suburbs

Olde Gahanna (Mostly Creekside)

Not part of the City of Columbus but a suburb on the eastside, next to the airport. I usually don't like to include suburbs, but for better or worse, they ara an important part of the Greater Columbus area

City of Gahanna

Gahanna Plantation was founded by John Clark of Ross County, Ohio as an 800 acre (3.2 kmē) farm. Its population grew over time, and it was incorporated in 1881. The first mayor of Gahanna was L. John Neiswander. According to the Gahanna Historical Society, the community was not named for the Biblical Gehenna, but from a local Native American word describing the meeting of three creeks, as the community is located at the confluence of branches of Big Walnut Creek, once called Gahanna Creek. Gahanna is also known as a bedroom community, with most of its residents living in Gahanna and traveling to neighboring Columbus or other suburbs of Columbus to work.

In 1970 most of northern Gahanna was still unannexed portions of Mifflin and Jefferson Townships.

In 1972, the Ohio government granted Gahanna the title of the Herb Capital of Ohio. This title was received due to the area's famous quality and quantity of herbs grown in the 1800s and 1900s. The Herb Capital of Ohio, Gahanna, is now home to the Herb Education Center and the Geroux Herb Gardens - which were named after the pioneering woman who gained Gahanna's status as the Herb Capital of Ohio, Bunnie Geroux. In addition, there are two herb festivals a year in Gahanna, May Herb Day and Herb Harvest Day.

Grandview Heights

Grandview Heights is a city in Franklin County, Ohio, United States. The population was 6,695 at the 2000 census.

The city was originally part of Marble Cliff, one of the first suburbs of Columbus, which settled as a community in 1890 and incorporated as the "Hamlet of Marble Cliff" in 1901. Grandview Heights became a separate village in 1906, and a city in 1931.

Grandview Heights maintains its own police and fire departments and an independent school district. Its neighbor, Marble Cliff, contracts with the city to provide these to its own residents.

Grandview Heights is often remarked upon as being a small insulated city very close to downtown Columbus and has one of the smallest school districts in the greater urban area in terms of student population.
