Stand nose-to-nose with a famous Indian Chief at Scioto Park

60 Days of Summer Columbus OH Fun Activities To Do

This Dublin City Park features the Leatherlips sculpture, which kids can climb the grassy hill and stand on, while they learn about this great historical leader from Ohio’s past. The rock sculpture of Chief Leatherlips is impressive, and stands next to an outdoor amphitheater that often hosts free concerts, dance, and theatrical performances throughout the summer.

Scioto Park also boasts 3 reservable picnic shelters, restrooms, an outdoor amphitheater, river landing, ADA accessible fishing pier, playground, volleyball, and wooded trail. Leashed pets are welcome. Parking is free and ample, and is close to the ADA accessible playground. Some of the swings and equipment on the playground are accessible for children with a variety of disabilities, and the river landing is also ADA accessible.

The wooded trail is easy and mostly level, although not fully paved. The river landing offers fishing with a valid Ohio fishing license, and interaction with local fish and waterfowl.

Truly a four-season Dublin City Park, this park boasts one of the area’s most popular sledding hills in winter, weather permitting.
