STORY OF CHANGE: WILSON ROAD TRAILHEAD

 The Columbus Recreation and Parks Department is a true gem in the Columbus community. Their mission is “to enrich the lives of our citizens.” That’s clear when you see the work they’re doing around the city. It is important to see the vital role these parks and facilities play in the social, physical, environmental, and economic health of our community. These parks and facilities promote social inclusion while being specialized anchors in the communities they serve.

Located on the West side, Wilson Road Park is the first for the community in 15 years. The implementation was observed beyond the property lines and efforts were made to establish a deeper understanding of the neighborhood context. Scale, attention to detail, and consideration of the human condition all contributed to the Wilson Road Trailhead. The cyclist hub champions for accessibility for all.
