By Alicia Amburgey, Publisher, Macaroni Kid NW Columbus May 20, 2022

We are lucky in Northwest Columbus to have so many great playgrounds and parks to explore. From swings to slides, to climbing walls and water features, Northwest Columbus's parks and playgrounds keep kids active, are a great place to meet old friends (and make new! friends), and they're FREE!

Many thanks to some of our amazing Columbus Macaroni Kid Ambassador Parents who helped review these parks for us. Keep checking back as this guide will be updated often with new Northwest Columbus parks and playgrounds.
