Surrounding by Victorian homes, the oldest park in the city capitalised well on the charm of its neighborhood. From beside the pond there are excellent views of the city skyline. Couples can usually be found canoodling in the pretty gazebo at the centre of the park. Amenities on offer include a playground, baseball diamond, tennis courts, a basketball court, and an open air shelter. The grass is beautifully kept, and here and there are small flowers clusters (including a lovely magnolia grove). Kids will especially love the elephants fountain on the north end of the park. It's not well known, but the park has over 169 species of trees! In June every year, a music and arts festival known as ComFest is held every year.

Goodale Park Reviews & Ratings
Great little historic park located just North of the arena district. Goodale Park is a wonderful place to take a walk, read a book, or to just relax. I love the old statues and architecture that surround the pond and greenscapes. Looking for a beautiful area to unwind? Look no further. Join us at Goodale Park.
Hmm, what a great little park! What will we see today? A naked sunbather? A group doing yoga? How about a KKK organization? This park is just a little slice of our world in America's Biggest Small Town. 5 stars for Goodale Park. Only wish I could afford to live closer!
A gorgeous park with numerous green spaces to run around. Our toddler loved running in the grass aimlessly. It’s not too crowded and the weather is absolutely perfect. They have 2 playgrounds that are clean and well maintained which our toddler loved as well. It’s a huge location with plenty of room to bring friends and family. We saw lots of dog families here too. Note: there looked like there was a hornets nest directly above the smaller playground in the trees. It’s a massive nest. Be careful Other than that, I really enjoyed my time here and will definitely be back!
Very pretty park, clean and well maintained. Lots of paths lined with benches, a pond and gazebo. A good way to spend the afternoon with your pup.
Great little green space in the Short North/Arena district part of town. I've been here just to walk around and enjoy the fountain, but I've also seen it full of people during Comfest. It's nice to have spots like this, and Columbus is rich with them!
