We’re 1 step closer to exploring amazing new Metro Park

Breaking the mold of every Columbus metro park to precede it, The QT would be a primitive playground for kayaking and other water recreation, camping, backpacking, sheer cliff face climbing, and many more wilderness activities.

A cliff face looks out over pristine water. It’s spring-fed; there are swans, egrets and turtles dotting the water’s edge and the rocks that descend into the azure mirror.


A primitive campsite with a stone fire pit sits overlooking the lake.

Cliffs to jump, walls to scale, trails to explore, paths to bike, waters to kayak, a waterfall to admire—all this close enough to home that you can have a full day communing with nature, and be back in time for dinner.


If you’re not excited for the 20th Columbus Metro Park yet, then you may find this tidbit of news interesting: Columbus & Franklin County Metro Parks has closed on a new parcel of land, adding 118 acres to the 62 purchased last year.

In other words, we’re getting closer to Keeping it on the QT.

Wagenbrenner Development who purchased the 600+-acre quarry intends to use the space not occupied by the park for offices, single and multi-family homes, condos, and retail.

Columbus Business First reports that Metro Parks is laying out the plans and conceptual designs for the parks now with hopes to break ground in 2019.
