The Scioto Mile: Parks are a great way to find entertainment while maintaining social distance. When you reside in Columbus, you have easy access to many parks, one of our favorites being the Scioto Mile. The Scioto Mile stretches along the downtown riverfront from the Arena District to the Whittier Peninsula, featuring beautiful parkland, fountains, city views and riverfront. Residents of Parks Edge Condominiums wake up to great views of the riverfront every day. To venture to more Ohio parks, checkout the official Ohio State Park Passport HERE.

Franklin Park Conservatory: The Amorphophallus titanium, aka corpse flower, is a giant bloom that requires a lot of energy to do so. Not only is it quite large, it is also quite smelly once its red petals emerge. This bloom takes the better part of a decade and the fully opened bloom only lasts about one day. Plan a visit to the Franklin Park Conservatory, and hope you catch a glimpse of this (literally) breathtaking, gigantic ‘pewty’. This will be the first time in the garden’s recorded history that one has flowered at Franklin Park Conservatory. Stay up to date on the plant they have named ‘Bob Smellanor’ HERE.

Baseball: Although this past year has been a bit short of a home run, we loved this article highlighting the legacy of Harry M. Stevens who attended his first baseball game in Columbus in late 1880’s. Harry was an ironworker at a mill and then a travelling book salesman. The sales job brought him to Columbus where he attended his first baseball game and changed not only the course of his career, but also the history of how baseball is enjoyed to this day.

Summer in the city: Residents are ready to make a splash this summer and through extra precautionary measures, apartments in the Arena District and Grandview Yard have been able to open despite some of the community pools in downtown Columbus and surrounding areas, remaining closed.

If you’re lucky enough to have your apartment swimming pool open in Columbus this summer, make the experience both fun and safe for you and your neighbors by staying informed and following these simple guidelines.

View virtual tours of amenities by property: Arena Crossing, Flats on Vine/Flats II, Apartments at the Yard.


Make a (safe) splash this summer: sharing common pool spaces and what you should consider

Residents are ready to make a splash this summer and through extra precautionary measures, apartment and condo homes in the Arena District and Grandview Yard have opened despite some of the community pools in downtown Columbus and surrounding areas, remaining closed.

With apartment pools hosting a smaller number of people than community pools, the reservation system put into place by communities such as Arena Crossing, Flats on Vine and Apartments at the Yard, ensure adequate space to have fun and maintain distance. To ensure that pools can remain open, additional pool guidelines and rules have been created in the wake of COVID-19.

If you’re enjoying your apartment or condominium swimming pool this year, make the experience pleasant and safe for everyone by following these simple rules of thumb:

 

Mask Up

While we are sure to see some amazing tan lines this year (and can’t wait to see what internet memes come out of it), you are not required to wear a mask the entire time you enjoy the pool. The CDC simply suggests that people frequenting common pool areas should wear a cloth covering around the deck especially, when near others. You should not wear a mask inside the pool for your safety as they can be difficult to breathe in when wet.

 

Be Polite at the Pool

While open community pools are allowing as many residents to the pool deck as they feel safely possible, many pools have limits to the number of residents allowed in the pool vs. the pool deck at a time. If you have reserved a slot and have been in the pool for a long time, consider getting out to allow someone else to take a dip – after all it is hot out! When in the pool, be sure not to go overboard – a game of chicken is probably not safe and splashing or showing your best cannonball is disrespectful to those trying to sunbathe on the deck.

 

Don’t Share Swim Gear

While we would never support sharing swim trunks or earplugs anytime (just gross), the swapping of swim gear should be taken even less lightly due to COVID-19. Though you may mean well, and you and the requester go way back, sharing pool equipment like goggles and snorkels pose several risks, as they touch the face and prove difficult to disinfect. That said, keep your gear to yourself.

 

Follow the Rules

While you might feel the urge to eye-roll the idea of following pool rules, they should be taken seriously. Most apartment and condominium communities in Columbus have expanded on pool rules posted throughout the area specific to COVID-19 guidelines and keeping residents safe. Chances are there is no lifeguard on duty, so personal responsibility is key, and guidelines are important to ensure a full pool season. The last thing apartment communities want is one person to ruin the summer fun for all.

 

Keep it Clean

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we could all be a little tidier. If the sell-out of many disinfectant sprays and hand-sanitizer didn’t tip you off, to fight bacteria and illness, common areas need to remain as clean as possible and while we aren’t asking you to pack disinfectant spray in your pool bag, we are offering a reminder that cleanliness is incredibly important right now. Remember to leave behind a clean spot to soak up the sun for the next group of residents. Additionally, cleanliness before and after entering the pool is important, so soap-up and rinse before and after entering the area.

 

Apartment and condominium pools should be enjoyed to the fullest this Summer. Following these guidelines will help you to stay a good neighbor and continue to receive those party invites when things get back to normal.

Through their efforts and Columbus support, 44,508 donations were received this year and a total of $32,588,660 was raised in support of the nonprofits in our community. Along with initiatives like the Big Give, we saw Nationwide gather for a ‘Standing in Unity Moving Forward Together’ event that took place in the Arena District Friday morning June 12, where it was announced that $1 million dollars was donated to support efforts that promote social equality and justice through backing of the NAACP, The Bail Project and The Equal Justice Initiative.
