MidTown Living Parks & Recreation

Why We Love MidTown!

“We love the location, the trees and yards, and the older homes. We love being near the park and near downtown. We love our neighbors and the neighborly feel of the MidTown area.” - Ceil Bone

“Simple things like sidewalks, knowing your neighbors, access to schools, neighborhood shops and a grocery store in walking distance, and a lively, beautiful park are reasons why I love the area. It also helps that my work is just minutes from home!” - Bennie Newroth, Weracoba-St. Elmo

“I live less than a mile from where I grew up and just over a mile from where I work. MidTown gives me a sense of community and it’s as beautiful an area as there is in Columbus!” - Martha Nitcher Dodson, Hilton Heights

Trees and trails, courts and fields.

MidTown’s walkable, bikable streets and paths connect neighborhoods, retail centers, pocket parks and
community gardens. A section of the 11-mile Fall Line Trace bicycle trail forms MidTown’s northern boundary.
In the heart of MidTown is Lakebottom Park, forty acres of urban greenspace and recreational facilities, and a
gathering, walking, running and play place of choice for people of all ages throughout the greater Columbus
region. Visit MidTown’s parks and trails here.
