Design for Innovation



Located on a scenic bend of the Scioto River, Scioto Grove Metro Park is a great destination for canoeists, kayakers, anglers, and wildlife enthusiasts. WSA Studio partnered with MKSK to master plan the park. Two large shelters and two small shelters pull the park together for a sense of community but also seclusion to an urban area.


WSA Studio is on the design team creating a new Metro Park in the Grove City community on the southern side of Columbus. This new park is a much-needed resource in the area. The site includes shelters specifically located along the trails to offer views of the Scioto River. WSA Studio created four rentable shelters; two family shelters holding eight to ten people and two large shelters holding 16-20 people. The Scioto Grove Metro Park is now open to the public.
