Worthington, Ohio is a suburb just north of Columbus. It has some fun neighborhood parks to explore! Some of the playgrounds have been newly remodeled making them a great destination for play!
1. Whitney Playground
Address: End of Whitney Ave., Worthington, Ohio 43085
Whitney Playground is a cute neighborhood playground within Olentangy Park. The larger park area includes green space, a skate park and access to the Olentangy Trail.
You may find different addresses for the park which may take you to a general location for Olentangy Park. But to get to Whitney Playground, you need to drive to the end of Whitney Ave. You can park on the residential street area. There is no official parking lot at the location of the playground.
This fun playground offers a couple of different play structures and swings. The surface here is soft rubber. Near to the park is a basketball court and some picnic tables. Behind the park is a walking trail in the woods that connects to the Olentangy Trail!
Unique features at the park include a steering wheel, enclosed slides, a small climbing wall and an infant swing. There are NO restrooms at this playground area!
2. Perry Park
Address: 2300 Collins Dr., Worthington, OH 43085
Perry Park was remodeled and reopened in February of 2023! The entire playground was replaced and new, artificial turf was installed. The playground at Perry Park is part of a larger sports complex with 3 baseball diamonds. There is a restroom here and picnic tables.
There are still a lot of climbing elements at this park including a couple of rope climbing structures.
There is a larger play structure and a smaller play structure plus interactive elements for younger kids!
My boys loved this swing pictured below!
The Perry Park remodel was a great upgrade if you’re looking for a playground in Worthington! I had to pull my boys away when it was time to leave!
3. Selby Park
Address: 358 Selby Blvd. S., Worthington, OH 43085
Selby Park is another one of the most newly remodeled playgrounds in Worthington! There is a lot of fun to be had here including a lot of unique climbing walls! There is also a good amount of swings here, including three face to face swings!
The artificial turf makes a nice, clean surface and there are three picnic tables with shade covers which make for a great picnic or snack spot. There is also a shelter house at the park with restrooms!
My kids really enjoyed the face to face swings and this climbing structure pictured above! The climbing options at Selby Park Playground are definitely a draw. In addition to this one, there is a large net structure your kids will love to climb on!
4. Wilson Hill Park
Address: 1025 Ridgedale Dr. E., Worthington, OH 43085
We discovered Wilson Hill Park in Worthington when looking for a nearby park where we could eat a take-out dinner! I was pleasantly surprised by the shady walking paths and large trees! Later I found out that the trees mark the former location of trolley car tracks!
Toddlers will enjoy the “General Store” and School Bus play areas at this playground in Worthington. Monkey bars and twisty slides are other fun features here!
Wilson Hill Park is part of a complex that also includes tennis courts, a basketball court and shelter house. Near the playground is a covered picnic area from which you can easily see your kids on the play structure.
5. McCord Park
Address: 333 E. Wilson Bridge Rd., Worthington, OH 43085
McCord Park underwent quite a renovation in 2022! More traditional play structures were taken down to create an obstacle course for kids that includes a super fun zipline!
The obstacle course even has a digital timer. Kids can hit the button to start the timer and then complete the obstacle course and check their time!
The are still a few traditional playground elements: some swings, a merry-go-round, a teeter totter and a slide built into the side of a hill.
A new train observation area was also completed. You can find this train car on the opposite side of the community center parking lot!
The park is fun for all ages, but maybe geared a bit more toward elementary age kids who are able to do the obstacle course. The closest restroom available is at the Community Center.
