The Top 10 Columbus Parks of 2020
While 2020 was mostly a year of social distancing and sheltering in place, it didn’t stop anyone from safely visiting outdoor greenspaces like city parks, metro parks and hiking trails. So one positive thing that we got to survey our readers and editors about was the annual list of best parks in Columbus and Central Ohio Region.
This year, they selected Goodale Park as the #1 pick, centered in the heart of Victorian Village, just north of Downtown Columbus. This 32 acre greenspace is one of the city’s oldest parks, with a 170-year history of public access. In addition to the open green spaces, the park features tennis courts, a basketball court, playground, picnic areas a gazebo and more. Goodale Park is home to many events throughout the year including outdoor movie nights, summer concert series and of course, ComFest.
