LOCAL FEATURE: GRIGGS RESERVOIR PARK

  |     |   LifeStyle
 

 

Sometimes, a great opportunity can be hidden in plain sight. For residents of Taylor House and Madison Park, that hidden gem could be Griggs Reservoir Park, a nature preserve with boating, disc golf, hiking, and picnicking opportunities.

Located just ten minutes from these Preferred Living communities, Griggs Reservoir Park has several parking areas along Riverside Drive to access its 186 land acres and 363 water acres. There are even a few waterfalls!

Who's Julian Griggs, the man the park is named after? He was the chief engineer for the City of Columbus at the start of the twentieth century when the reservoir dam was built.

For more information on the park, visit Columbus.gov or check it out on Google Earth.
