This playground in Grove City is ideal for toddlers. It’s a rather flat playground, which is great for kids who aren’t quite ready for climbing and tall slides. There is a small climbing area better for older kids, but overall, I would recommend this playground for younger kids.

These parks and playgrounds in Westerville, Ohio are super fun for Central Ohio kids! 

Westerville has some of the best parks, if you ask me! It’s kind of a hike for us, but one day we ended up visiting 3 of them in one morning because they are so close to each other! These five parks all have some really unique features that make them extra fun and special!

If you’re looking to make an outing out of your visit to Westerville, make sure to check out Uptown Westerville where you can find the cutest toy store: Naturally Curious Kids, some classic donut choices at Schneider’s Bakery or get your coffee fix at Java Central. You can read about Naturally Curious Kids in my list of Over 20 Free Indoor Play Areas in Columbus and the restaurants in Playdate in Uptown Westerville.

5 Super Fun Playgrounds for Kids in Westerville, Ohio: 

1. Hoover Reservoir Park

  • 7701 Sunbury Rd, Westerville, OH 43081

This is a small playground in comparison to the others, but I’ve included it because it’s right by the water and in my book, anytime you can do anything near water when you’re in Central Ohio, it’s a bonus! After playing, we enjoyed walking to the dock to see the boats and ducks and throw rocks into the water.

The playground was a lot of fun for my 5 year old who enjoyed climbing and the tall slide!

2.. Spring Grove North

  • 1201 E. County Line Rd., Westerville, OH 43081

Playground at Spring Grove North Park, Westerville, Ohio

What makes this playground so cool is that one of the play structures is shaped like a ship! With two tall masts, a telescope and other ship-like features, kids can use their imagination to play sailors or pirates! There is also a smaller sized structure for toddlers and swings available!

There is also the constant buzzing noise overhead from the electric wires, so be forewarned! Restrooms are available in the adjacent picnic pavilion.

A lot of free concerts happen here at the amphitheater throughout the summer, and if you’re up for the trek uphill, it’s within walking distance of Uptown.
