Many cities might claim more parks, recreational facilities, and/or bike path miles, but few can lay claim to being a City in a Park; purposely planned, continuously improved, and meticulously maintained. The City of Westerville’s heritage dating back to 1809, its natural beauty, and careful planning make it a very special place to visit and live. The parks and recreational facilities in Westerville include almost 30 miles of bike paths and nearly 600 acres of parkland.
As a City in a Park, Westerville intentionally links its heritage to its present and future. Park purposes and experiences range broadly: natural respites from day-to-day hustle and bustle, family activities, education, sports, art exhibitions and performance, to recognizing and memorializing local and national events. The diversity of Westerville’s parks focus and activities, engaging the community and visitors in multiple ways.
