Nice park. We came to see the small herd of bison. We didn't think we were going to see them, but did as we were driving away from the park so I didn't get a pic of them. My husband stopped at the restroom, which was very nice for a park. The park ranger/worker even said they sanitize them 4 times a day. He was also very helpful in directing us to the nature center. They were having an Easter egg hunt for kids when we were there in late March. There were lots of walkers and joggers. It seems very family friendly. There was a sign warning people not to leave their valuables unattended, but it didn't have an unsafe feel. The nature center was closed, but you could still walk outside and get some information. There was a metal bison that was pretty artistic. Lots of prairie grass and tress. Ample parking. A pretty area.

Spring is here at Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park near Columbus Ohio. We visited the park early spring and discovered the tree leaves, grass and flowers were blooming. People were out enjoying the brisk air as they walked the trail next to the fast-moving water in the creek. Although the temperature was in the 40’s people were out grilling on a Sunday afternoon. Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park is one of a few places in the country to witness bison in their natural habitat. The bison roam freely in multiple fenced pastures.

Great place to enjoy nature with no crowds, fees, or lines. Buffalos are beautiful! Great for couples and family. Not to far to walk. Depending on the time of year you may want to bring a parasol to block the direct sun. Any day of the week is great!

Been there 4 times, never saw one Bison (Buffalo). I know they move around but in 4 times nothing. If you go just to see the Bison, be prepared to not see any or not many. However the inside place is nice, hands on and fun for kids. Lots of free parking, free entrance, lots of trails to walk.

I went with some friends and we had a great 5 mile hike through the park. The trails/roads were well maintained and there was plenty of flora and fauna to enjoy as well. As we were returning to the parking lot, we noticed that there were several Bison in a field nearby. It was very cool to see these magnificent animals in person but he behind a fence and at a safe distance. :)
