Get Water Play!

Happy Trails from the Scioto Audubon boat ramp down the Scioto River, you can  launch your boat, canoe or kayak! You can also get in touch with your inner fisherman with options to fish from the boat ramp or an elevated fishing dock. Who would have thought you can experience fishing and boating in the heart of downtown Columbus? Is there anything you can’t do in the city?

Get Family Time! 

Picnicking is a lot of fun at the Scioto Audubon and is available on a first come, first serve basis. The three picnic shelters include tables and grills, and feature age appropriate play equipment for kids, interactive electronic game, sand volleyball courts and play fields for grass sports. The pets are a part of the family too- domesticated dogs and cats are permitted in picnic areas and designated pet trails. There is a separate area in the Scioto Audubon which includes 2.5 acres, and features separate areas for small and large dogs, including an agility course.
