Sharon Woods Park is a large park in northeastern Franklin County. It has numerous walking and jogging trials for its guests. There are shelters houses for picnics and a nice playground for children on the premises. Deer is often seen running throughout the park. The lake is beautiful but swimming and boating are not allowed. A lovely family park that... More

From bike paths to walking paths, lake, and play and picnic areas, this park has it all. Sharon Woods also boasts one of the last stands of oak trees in Ohio that date from and before... More

I love the 3.8 mile ADA walking loop. It goes through woods and by meadows. It has a nice mix of flat and inclined parts. There are plenty of squirrels and birds around.

Love this park - especially for the fully paved paths through the park which is close to 4 miles. Some wood, and grassy fields. Gentle hills part of paved path. Playground and fishing pond.

Each time I visit Columbus we are on the lookout for outings that I can take my mom who is an amputee and wheelchair limited. We were able to bring a picnic lunch and wheel her easily lakeside so she could enjoy her lunch and seeing the geese that she so enjoys. Next time we are going to hit those... More

4 mile multi-purpose, paved trail. Quite a few other walking trails, picnic areas, reservable shelters, Schrock Lake. What's not to like? Good place to mingle with an international crowd. Of course, that is what is great about Columbus, many different people all getting along.

Our friends live nearby to Sharon Woods and we had the opportunity to hike the trail system one day and bike it later in the week. Beautiful wooded trails made exercise fun even in the heat of summer! Not too crowded and the pond is fun to look at the birdlife!

This park has some very nice walking trails and also has a nice pond. The picnic areas are also top notch. I wish it was closer to my house, I would go there more often.

Beautiful park, with amazing wildflower fields. Great for an evening walk and to dragonfly or bird watch. Great for kids.
