The category of “Best Park” is a new one for our annual readers survey. The entire Columbus region is filled with great city parks, metro parks, hiking trails, bike trails and other greenspaces to choose from, depending on your mood. The most popular park, according to our readers, is Goodale, located in Victorian Village. Its central location provides easy access for all, and remains a pleasant refuge in the middle of the city’s urban core. With nearly 33 acres of greenspace, Goodale touts amenities including a pond with fountain, tennis courts, a gazebo, playgrounds, and a variety of warm weather event programming to keep you entertained.
