Park #10: Alum Creek Park North - Westerville

The sister park to Alum Creek Park South, separated by the quite extensive Alum Creek Trail which runs from Alum Creek State Park North of the 270 outer belt all the way to my neck of the woods in Olde Towne East. Along the creek were several of these cute artsy things on the telephone poles.


For running thru some of Columbus' most busy parts of town, Alum Creek is quite the serene oasis.

This smallish park along the Main Drag in Westerville was quite nice. It was just a short walk away from Otterbein College (home of the fighting Methodist Cardinals. Go Cards!!).

Although it looked like a nice creek, hell if I woulda waded in it or eaten anything caught there!

I need to figure out what kind of events they hold here as it was pretty sweet to stumble onto this. I feel a repeat trip coming on.


As Alice says, "School's Out For Ever!"

After looking up this park's Amphitheater, it looks like they hold concerts there under the title of Sounds of Summer Concert Series. Big Bands & cover bands, all free, and the community is welcome to bring lawn chairs & coolers. All in all, both the Alum Creek Parks combined with the adjoining trail and a concert would be a great way to laze away a nice Sunday Afternoon. Well worth checking out along with adjacent Westerville, OH. for a calendar of events.
