Sharon Woods Metro Park has a great fishing spot for families! Schrock Lake allows for bluegill, bass, and catfish fishing by Seniors and children 15 and under, and is a great place for a first fishing experience, or a grandchild/grandparent fishing trip. Close to home for tired toddlers or teens, it offers a safe, comfortable fishing experience.

Sharon Woods is one of our best known Columbus Metro Parks but is worth visiting often. With playgrounds, nature programs, fishing, natural play area, and picnic areas as well as walking trails, this is a beautiful, classic place to spend summer days!

Cyclists, inline skaters, and families with disabled or stroller-loving members will love the four miles of paved trails. For the more able or adventurous, there are 3 miles of unpaved nature trails that wind along stream beds and wetlands… do use mosquito protection on these trails in high summer!

The nature preserve here boasts original old growth trees that have been growing and thriving here for over 100 years, definitely worth the walk to enjoy an increasingly rare sight.

Thinking of throwing a party this summer? The Spring Hollow Lodge offers rustic beauty as well as the whole park of amenities and can be reserved for events such as family reunions or birthdays.

Sharon Woods is a four-season park, with year-round nature programs, and great sledding and skiing come snowfall!
