Creeking and Natural Play Area 💦
@ Highbanks Metro Park
9466 Columbus Pike, Lewis Center
A natural splash pad with beautiful views. We bought fish nets and our girls were so excited! My oldest daughter enjoyed the ‘rainbow rocks’, and my youngest just enjoyed the calm water to splash in. As summer comes to an end, you’ll want to check this area out.
Scroll for pictures of the creek, natural play area and an additional playground, along with all the details.
Also, don’t leave without checking out the nature center.
👣How to get there?
Drive to the Big Meadows Picnic Area and walk straight across the open field from the restrooms, enter the path in the woods past the natural play area. Once you get to the path intersection, turn left. Continue walking until the creek becomes rocky and more shallow, you’ll know when you get there.
