What’s Included in This Columbus Playground Guide?

In the guide below, you will find some really fun playgrounds that are part of the Columbus and Franklin County Metro Parks like the one below at Glacier Ridge Metro Park. Some of our very favorite playgrounds are within the Metro Parks!

You will also find playgrounds that are great for toddlers! You know the ones without super high drop offs and the ones with the cutest play equipment like this playground at Amberleigh Park in Dublin (below).

One of the most popular playgrounds I have ever posted about is affectionately known as the “dinosaur park”! It’s really called Veteran’s Park and in it’s in Delaware, Ohio behind the YMCA. You must visit this park pictured below one at least once!
