Fun in the sun at Easton Town Center!

60 Days of Summer Columbus OH Fun Activities To Do

Splish, splash, you’ll be having a blast in the Easton fountain in the Town square! Right next to Townsfair Way, the fountain is a grid of water jets that kids just love to play with, and parents love the shaded benches surrounding the fountain area. A perfect place to beat the summer heat. All summer long there are snack vendors, bathrooms, and sometimes even towels just a step away from the fountains.

easton-town-center-fountain-play-daveyninConcerned that it’s quite a drive for your family to just play in a fountain? Combine the splashy fun with a trip to the Lego Store, a Barnes & Noble story time, indulge your child of any age at Build-a-Bear Workshop, or take in one of the evening outdoor concerts! There’s a ton of stuff to do at Easton, and with a so many restaurants, Mom doesn’t have to cook that night, and the dine-in AMC theater is a great place for dinner and a family flick!

Have fun splashing around, and take advantage of all the family fun at Easton Town Center!
