Wag! Walkers know Franklinton

Franklinton, which is separated from the rest of downtown Columbus by the Scioto River, is now a haven for the arts. Here, you will find collectives such as 400 West Rich Street, the Glass Axis, and more. There are several excellent places to eat within the community along with a couple of micro-breweries.聽

Franklinton is also home to the Mt. Carmel West Hospital, numerous ancillary services, and dozens of residential blocks. Living here puts you near to multiple parks and at least two dog parks. But if you want a pet supply store, you are in for a long drive.聽

If you're are looking for a place to walk with all four seasons, then Franklinton is the place to be. Summers are hot in the 80s with winters below freezing with plenty of snow and ice to deal with. Spring and fall are warm with a little rain, but nothing that should stop you taking Fido for daily walks.聽

What is the terrain like in Franklinton?

The terrain here is urban with plenty of sidewalks for you and your pup to walk on. Extending from the northwest all the way down to the southeast corner of the neighborhood, the Scioto River creates a natural barrier to the rest of the downtown area, making it fairly difficult to cross from one side to the other on foot. Though you'll be plenty satisfied with the amount of space and number of streets to venture down and across within the boundaries of Franklinton itself.

While there are no large spots of grass to wander and play in, there are more than enough grassy curbs to take a break from the busier roads. During the rush hours, you'll want to stick to these spaces more than the actual streets due to the amount of traffic that can make its way through the neighborhood on a regular basis. Consider safety above all else!聽

How many greenways are there in Franklinton?

Franklinton is surrounded by parks, most of which you and Fido can play in as long as they are on a leash. Starting at the northeast corner, you have Rhodes Park, a large public green space with ballfields and a playground. Then comes McKinley Park which is essentially a smaller open space where you can walk or play.聽All along the northern side of town along the Scioto River are walking trails you can follow for many miles.聽

On the other side of the river and to the east is Whittier Peninsula, the Scioto Greenway, Lower Scioto Park and boat launch, and the Scioto Audubon Metro Park. Continuing south on the east side, you have McCoy Park, the Lou Berliner Sports Park and other green spaces.聽

Finally, on the west side is Glenwood Park, a small wooded area. As you can imagine, there might not be much in the way of green space in Franklinton itself, but all around the borders of the community there are plenty to enjoy.聽
