Whetstone Park is a large, municipal park with baseball fields, tennis courts, and rental
spaces for group outings, right in the heart of Clintonville. Dog walkers, joggers, and anyone who likes the outdoors feels safe here, since the park usually has activity in all of its various areas. Families with children can enjoy the many bike paths and playground spaces.
Within Whetstone Park you will find the ColumbusPark of Roses. This park within a park features well maintained rose gardens, gazebos, and of course, a garden club, and during most summer weekends you can witness an outdoor wedding at this beautiful facility.
Location is a significant aspect of buying a home, and Clintonville is a plus in that category. High Street is the main north-south artery in Columbus and is easily
accessible from most parts of Clintonville. City buses frequent High Street all day and evening for jaunts to the OSU campus or downtown to COSI for the kids. It is close to desirable destinations, but not suffocated by them. To the north, historic Beechwold and Worthington offer shopping and events of interest, and to the south, OSU, the trendy Short North, and downtown are always loaded with activities. Right in
Clintonville you can find lots of fun shops, thrift stores,and antique shops, as well as the very popular Clintonville Farmers Market weekends during the summer. Walking to Mozart’s for a yummy pastry, or grabbing a bite at one of the many restaurants makes this community very popular.
When considering the Clintonville area, consider the proximity to both the Riverside Methodist Hospital complex and Ohio State University Hospital complex. Quick access to a large variety of doctor and specialist offices, as well as medical research centers, make the Clintonville location a list topper.
