On the Whittier Peninsula, just south of downtown, the Grange Insurance Audubon Center provides vital educational services to central Ohio. It is the first in the country to be built so close to the heart of a major city,only one mile from downtown Columbus, and is the focus of a major urban reclamation and redevelopment project that involves Audubon, the City of Columbus, and Franklin County Metro Parks. The facility is located within The Scioto Audubon Metro Park, on the Scioto River and is a community gathering place for those who live and work downtown, as well as everyone in the Central Ohio area.
