Godown Park


  1. Drinking fountain
  2. Open green space


Established in 2012 in partnership with the City of Columbus, Godown Park is a 10-acre park primarily developed as a dog park and consists of a one-acre small dog area, a four-and-a-half-acre large dog area and also includes benches, a dog water fountain, pathways winding through the park and a paved parking lot. The land was acquired in 2000 and was previously used by the Parks Department as a tree nursery. The park is open from dawn to dusk. Considerable support and fundraising were provided by W.O.O.F. (Worthington Organized Off-leash Friends).

A collaborative effort between the Worthington Parks & Recreation Department and FLOW (Friends of the Lower Olentangy Watershed) has established a tree nursery within a designated area of the park. This nursery serves as a dedicated space for nurturing native Ohio trees, including Sycamore, Oak, Buckeye, and Hickory species. The primary objective is to cultivate these trees with the intention of transplanting them in the future, thereby replacing older trees within the vicinity. This proactive approach ensures the preservation and rejuvenation of the park's natural environment. 

The park is open from dawn to dusk.  Please comply with all Dog Park Rules.
