Scioto Mile

The Scioto Mile is a $40+ million investment in Downtown Columbus’ Riverfront. Under the direction of Columbus Downtown Development Corporation (CDDC), which was created in 2002 to lead Downtown redevelopment and implement the Downtown Strategic Plan, The Scioto Mile is just one part of the City’s five-part revitalization plan. The two major elements of the Scioto Mile are the Promenade and the renovated Bicentennial Park. More information can be found at www.sciotomile.com.
