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.

Although this park periodically floods, it has some short hiking trails, a small dam, pedestrian bridges and an opportunity for children to feed the ducks.

Stopped by this little hidden gem after lunch at the Old Back of Nails. It is a surprisingly pleasant spot that I walked for about 20 minutes. The creek is fun to simply sit and watch with the pleasant noises and water fowl.

Creekside Park is very easy to access, with free parking in the Creekside Garage. This is a gorgeous spot to spend a day, walk the trails, enjoy lunch or dinner, and take a paddleboat ride!

Small park located in Gahanna. Although small and can be slippery around the fountain, an excellent place for an evening stroll. Gahanna seems to host several festivals and live bands in this area. There are several good restaurants around the park and plenty of free...More

Enjoyed a live concert and a pleasant walk. The area is worth visiting. Gahanna calls itself Herb Capital and there is a Herb trail a Creekside.

Creekside is a beautiful place to visit and located near many restaurants. There is a creek along with a very large water feature in the center of the square. This is a great place to go for pictures or to enjoy the setting.
