Did you know… 

about Gahanna?



Did you know that Forbes listed Gahanna as one of the best 100 cities to live in 2007?

Forbes writes that; “(Gahanna is) A diverse town with affordable homes (median home price is $144,900), this Columbus suburb is revitalizing its main street with the Creekside redevelopment project. The development will add retail, restaurants, condos, office space and a public park with a lagoon and waterfall to the downtown area known as Olde Gahanna.” 

Gahanna, the Herb Capital of Ohio and a beautiful community located conveniently only minutes from Ohio’s capital, has many beautiful parks, activities, and events for all to enjoy!  There is still time left in the Summer for you and your family to enjoy the outdoors in this beautiful burb of Columbus. 

Enjoy the activities of Creekside! 

If you are interested in the family events of Gahanna, you will love the newly revitalized Creekside!  Located downtown Gahanna, Creekside is another park based around the Big Walnut Creek.  Restaurant / Bars such as The Old Bag of Nails Pub and The Pour House are located right on the creek.  You can eat dinner while enjoying breathtaking views.   When you are done with dinner, walk everyone  over to Coldstone Creamery for some delicious ice cream and head on down to the boardwalk. The boardwalk on one end will take you along the creek back towards the golf course and at the other end it will take you towards historic Gahanna.  

Creekside also is home to many big events in Central Ohio including the Creekside Blues and Jazz Festival.  The festival has already passed this Summer but you can be sure to look forward to it again next June.  With such talented acts as Columbus’s own Willie Phoenix and  also The ColumbusJazz Orchestra.  According to the website dedicated to The Creekside Blues and Jazz Festival, “The Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival is a three day cultural celebration featuring hundreds of musicians, delicious cuisine, artisans from the region, amusement rides and engaging family activities. The event started over ten years ago as a one day dedication of Gahanna's new Creekside Park area and the beginning of Olde Gahanna's revitalization. The Creekside Blues & Jazz Festival has experienced unprecedented growth in attendance and has truly become more than the celebration of music, food and fun; it has become a premiere family summer event."

Make Academy Park a family tradition!

If you and your family love to do outdoor activities together, Academy Park is the perfect spot for you!  Academy Park connects the East and West Side of Big Walnut Creek.  The East side of the park includes a large playground for the kiddos, multiple baseball fields for all ages, a refreshment stand including public restroom facilities that stay open all year round, and a loop around the entire park that equals out to be about a half mile.  For the runner / walker / bike rider of the family, this loop is a great way to calculate your mileage!  There are trails extending off of this loop as well.  If you take the trail at the South side of the park back through the woods, you will be charmed by the serenity of the beautiful mature trees, the bridges over creeks and rivers, and the neighborly people out to take their dogs for a stroll or to ride a bike through the woods.  

As you walk through the woods and once you cross the river, you may notice the smell of cooking hot dogs.  That is because you will be coming up on another picnic shelter.  The other half of this amazing park is on the other side!  You will notice a beautiful, well-kept pond, a few mallards swimming in the water, and maybe a fisherman or two (make sure to ask them what they are catching).  The West side of Academy Park also has it’s own restroom facilities year-round, a playground, a baseball diamond, and a basketball court for you to brush up on your layups. 

To get to Academy Park from the Morse Road and Cherrybottom  Road intersection you may travel South on Cherrybottom.  The entrance to the park will be on your right, not even a mile down the road!

Spend a day on the green!

After a busy day of business meetings and fast talk at the Creekside Conference and Event Center, it's time for some rest and relaxation.  The Gahanna Golf Course is only right down the street from Creekside and it will be open until dusk 7 days a week.  Enjoy an outing with your business partners or your friends and swing out a few rounds. 

Come to Gahanna for a visit.  We would love to entertain you!
