Scioto Audobon Metro Park is pet-friendly. This unique park in the shadow of Columbus’ pretty skyline gives a whole new meaning to recycled. Situated along the Scioto River, the 120-acre recreation area was once a thriving industrial area, home to factories, warehouses, rail yards and more. Nowadays, it has been reimagined for use by the people of Columbus. Check out the dog park, climbing wall, awesome trails and obstacle course. The park is open every day of the week from 6:30am to 8:00pm.
