More About Worthington
Find Your Dream Home
Few communities in Central Ohio can compete with Worthington’s charm. From the center of Worthington, a few blocks in any direction uncover a town with a unique view of itself. To the west, visitors can stroll along remarkable, oak-lined, 100-year-old neighborhoods bordering the historic Worthington downtown. Several blocks to the east, you will find homes inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs. North a few blocks, opens up to modern shopping and fine dining. To the south, sightseers will find Worthington’s flats merging with the quaint Beechwald community. This six square mile city on the northern edge of Franklin County spreads itself out into a community with even larger living opportunities.
Spend the Day Outdoors
Residents can enjoy an intense or leisurely bike ride on the eight foot wide, paved 12.5-mile Olentangy Multi-Use Trail. Running along the meadows and forests of the Olentangy River’s floodplains, the trail connects the Worthington Hills and Mt. Airy area to downtown Columbus. A ride along the river’s banks passes through the Worthington Hills Park, Clinton-Como Park, Antrim Park, Whetstone Park (home to the Park of Roses), Northmoor Park, Tuttle Park, and Confluence Park. But it isn’t all parks; you also pass through The Ohio State University’s campus – offering great views of the university buildings, St. John’s Arena, and the OSU Football Stadium, affectionately referred to as “The Horseshoe.”
Art, Sports, and Activities
If traversing through Worthington in not your cup of tea, then perhaps sitting poolside at the Worthington Community Center will prove to be a more relaxing way to enjoy the city. The center allows either family frolicking or lap swimming, along with lessons. While there, you can also take advantage of the state-of-the-art fitness center, twin basketball courts, art rooms, community rooms, and all the amenities you’d expect from a world class recreational center.
Once your body is exercised or relaxed, you may decide to focus on developing your mind. Once again, Worthington delivers. Residents can attend one of the many programs sponsored through the Worthington Arts Council or the nationally-recognized Worthington Schools’ Drama and Music Departments. In either case, residents and visitors can attend plays, musicals, art exhibits, art socials, or artist workshops. Better yet, because the Worthington Arts Council highlights local artists, you have an opportunity to show off your own works. Recent events include an Emerging Artists series, a Children’s Holiday Art Shop, and a Visual Arts program.
A short 20-minute drive takes you from Worthington to Ohio’s capital city, Columbus where you can enjoy live theater, concerts, museums, galleries, sporting events, shopping and dining.
