The arrival of spring means itís time for tram rides at the Columbus Metro Parks!

The tram, which is housed at different parks throughout the spring, summer and fall, is a great way to explore local parks.

Park rangers take riders around the parks in search of animals, flowers and other interesting sights. Tram rides happen morning, noon and night and offer a new perspective on your favorite park.
