Scioto Audubon is a 94-acre park located in the downtown of Columbus. Created through a partnership between Columbus Recreation and Parks Department and the Parks Department of Audubon Ohio.

Audubon Center

Located on the east bank of the Scioto River on the Whittier peninsula in Columbus, already a magnet for shore birds and birds of preys. Metro Parks has created 7 wetland cells in the park, approximately 5 acres in total, to enhance the wildlife habitat. Wetland birds such as wood ducks, blue-winged teal and sand pipers have been attracted to the park, along with egrets, northern pintail ducks, pied-billed grebe, American bittern, herons and osprey.

Boat Ramp: You can launch your boat and sail the Scioto River.

Fishing Access: Fish the river from the boat ramp. Other fishing docks are planned.

Hiking and Biking: The Scioto Greenway Trail runs through the park, going south about 2 miles to Berliner Park, and north to  Centennial Park, where there's a connection to the Olentangy Greenway Trail, which goes north to Wilson Bridge Road, just south of I-270 in Worthington.
