Getting a good dose of fresh air is always a good thing.

Make it happen at any one of these five local outdoor scenes!

Take in Scioto Mile

Walk, jog, sprint, bike; it doesn’t really matter at all! Enjoy downtown’s sprawling acres of green space and riverfront view. Hell, maybe even take a few moments to relax on one of the swings if time allows.

Bask in sun at Alum Creek

It’s no PCB but there’s water and what some categorize as sand so we’re calling it a beach, y’all! Pack the lunch meat sandwiches and juice pouches because it’s time to soak up the sun!

Take on the Scioto Audubon

Test your strength and get your sweat on at the Scioto Audubon Metro Park. From tire flipping to obstacle courses to the rock climbing wall you see above, the Audubon will provide a beautiful and challenging way for you to spend the warm spring day.

No, this isn’t a far off tropical paradise. It’s a metro park right in your backyard! Inniswood Metro Garden is 123-acre vegetation playground located in Westerville.

Nothing tastes better than a PB&J shared with a loved one. Take in the sights and smells of this beautiful park, nestled in the bustling Short North, with a picnic beneath one of the strong, blooming tree canopies.
