There's plenty of free fun to be had at Columbus Commons this summer.

The park, located on the site of the former City Center, offers free activities for kids on Fridays through Aug. 31.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., kids can enjoy carousel rides and inflatable games. The Columbus Metropolitan Library hosts a story hour at 10:30.

The park has a wide array of family-oriented events planned for the summer, visit http://columbuscommons.org/ for more details.
