The Scioto Mile in Columbus, Ohio

The Scioto Mile is an exceptional park in the heart of downtown Columbus, Ohio. It is a great place to go for a walk and enjoy nature, or you can visit one of many restaurants along the riverfront. There are also festivals and events held here throughout the year.
Whether it’s your first time visiting or if you live nearby, we think everyone should check out this beautiful space at least once!

The Scioto Mile is home to many things: nature trails, lush gardens, fountains, and waterfalls – but perhaps its greatest asset is that it sits right on top of where our city was founded by none other than our very own Christopher Columbus. The word “Scioto” means “river” in the word “Scioto” means “river” in the Shawnee language, and was named after the river that runs behind (and through!) downtown Columbus.

This area is a personal favorite of mine. When I lived in downtown Columbus I would walk my dog down the path at least once a day throughout the year. No matter which direction you decide to walk in, there is always something amazing to see.
