Run wild at Glacier Ridge


Bring the family (Fido too!) to Glacier Ridge Metro Park for a fun-filled day of outdoor exploration and relaxation. Located in northwest Columbus, this beautiful park gives you a taste of the natural world. Lace up your hiking boots and walk on one of the five trails that run through the park or bike the Ironweed Trail from the wetlands to the disc golf course.

Burn off some energy as adults and kids climb ropes and ladders or ride the zipline. Let your pup loose in the dog park, where they can practice tricks or wander in the wooded area. After a day full of play, string up your hammocks and unwind to the sounds of birds flying above. Check out the Gleason family blog and read all about their experience at Glacier Ridge Metro Park.
