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.
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.
