This beautiful five-acre park is the centerpiece of historic Olde Gahanna. Best known for its lovely waterfall, the park invites visitors to stroll the walkways, enjoy a nostalgic picnic, take a paddle boat ride, fish, or wade in the delightful water of the meandering Big Walnut Creek.

Lovely Little Park in Old Towntown Gahanna

Pretty creek with walking paths and lots of trees. There are paddle boats to rent. Lots of geese, ducks and swans. Relaxing place to take a walk or commune with nature.

Clean, small park in the heart of Gahanna. Great place to skip rocks or feed the ducks. Safe to run and walk.

Warmer weather helps as it is chilly down in the creek. Pretty place as creeks go. Lots of eating places nearby to go to warm up after a chilling walk. Take a camera or use your smartphone as you can take pretty pics throughout the park.

This is such a great little place to walk through and visit. Feed the ducks, enjoy the waterfall, paddle the boats, or grab a meal or treat. This is a great place to visit!

This is a great place to walk around, feed the ducks, or go in a paddle boat. There are also a variety of restaurants in the area and even a cupcake shop in the area.

Beautiful place to relax and enjoy nature.....walk around the creek and also do a little shopping in the nice selection of shops. Or, grab a table and just sit back and enjoy the surroundings with your meal, very nice restaurants.

The park is pretty. They could use better signage so you know where the paths go. You can rent paddle boats. It was weird because it was crowded but EVERYONE had their faces in thier phones playing pokemon. We did not eat at the resturants that are right on the path, but they looked nice. We will return.

This is an awesome park to grab quality time alone or with friends. As for kids, I came here when I was young to play in the waterfall and ride in the paddle boats. This park is recommended for all ages, so grab an ice cream from cold stone creamery and finish it in the park 😊

You can enter the park at several places. I suggest if your from out of town you park in the Parking Garage off of Mill Street. There are several restaurants in the area and you can walk along side of the creek and enjoy the views. The park closes at dusk. Dogs allowed on leash.
