Stay-at-Home Partying for Parents

Goodale Park

What would a city be without its playful oases of green? Downtown Columbus — and the Victorian Village neighborhood, to be precise — has a great oasis in Goodale Park. This 32-acre, 163-year-old park sits just north of Interstate 670, which lends a soundtrack of humming traffic to the beautiful scenery in the park and the horizon of skyscrapers to the south.
