Press Release wrote Creekside Gahanna Dedication Weekend Set for May 1-4
A new heart for Olde Gahanna will officially start beating at the beginning of May when Creekside Gahanna celebrates its grand opening with a weekend of activities for all ages. The mixed-use community, which represents one of the most significant developments in Gahanna’s more than 150-year history, features 100,000 square feet of office and retail space, along with 140,000 square feet of residential loft condos amid public plazas adjacent to the scenic Big Walnut Creek.
A four-day grand opening weekend will feature a public dedication Saturday, May 3 at 11:30 a.m. All community members are encouraged to attend.
Multiple public events are scheduled for the evenings of Thursday May 1 and Friday May 2, and throughout Saturday and Sunday, May 3 and 4. Numerous activities for families, adults, teenagers and children will be held during the four days, such as musical performances, paddle boat rides, garden tours and face painting.

“The revitalization of Olde Gahanna is a success that all our citizens can point to with great pride because it represents an investment in our future,” Mayor Stinchcomb said. “Creekside has attracted new retailers, restaurants and businesses to our city, as well as bringing new residents who appreciate the comfortable sophistication of urban living in a natural setting. We expect Creekside and the surrounding area to be a destination where Gahanna residents and visitors will spend an extended period of time enjoying the multi-faceted experience we have to offer them.”
