Ballantrae Community Park is a slightly odd (to me) park in Dublin Ohio. The area topography is flat and the neighborhood is a newer residential area, but they have deliberately set aside this park for greenspace and a place to play. The park is itself mostly flat with a lot of grass and a large man-made pond. In the summer they have a splash area I'm sure the neighborhood children love. We came in mid-March to see the Dancing Hares. They are on a round man-made hill that is about 50 feet tall. The three hares or rabbits themselves are over 20 feet tall each. It's certainly fun to see them from the road, but you'll want to walk up the hill (there is a spiral path) to get a closer look. They were made by London artist Sophie Ryder out of all kinds of scrap. If you look closely at the rabbits you will see everything from gloves, to scissors, to industrial gears making up the rabbits themselves. This is actually one of several odd roadside attraction-like things to see in Dublin, a Columbus suburb. Most people will also want to see the large cornfield, about miles away and there is also a monument to Chief Leatherlips. This is worth a detour on a nice day.

Had heard about the “Dancing Rabbits” and been wanting to see them first hand. Finally got the chance while visiting my OSU student. A fun little stop to see these and other “Oddities of Columbus” (Corn Henge, Leatherlips, Rusty Steel Horses). There is a splash park that would be great on a hot day for the kids. (This wasn’t running, perhaps due to COVID-19?) there is also a large green space that would be perfect for young ones to run off some energy. We only stayed a little while, but could see young families staying longer for a picnic or letting the kids be kids!

Gorgeous park, very clean and well taken care of. Did not see any sign explaining any significance of the rabbits. They were very interesting to see up close.

I was driving down the street and noticed an interesting statue. As I got closer, I realized it was three rabbits frolicking on top of a hill. The hill was set in a park that was otherwise flat. I parked and walked the entire park to observe the City of Dublin cares about the aesthetics of its parks. One can only imagine the mentality of dogs walking in the park when they see these super sized rabbits on top of the hill.

This is a quiet little park in Dublin ohio surrounded by residential neighborhoods. The main attraction is the little hill with a large sculpture of 3 dancing bunnies. There is also a splash pad, a rock field, and a large pond. I would definitely recommend it as a place to let the kids run in the warmer months, as the splash pad and restrooms get shut down for winter.
