What To Do Around Powell Grand Communities
The brand new Powell Grand Communities are positioned in a prime location at Sawmill and Seldom Seen Road. While only being 20 minutes from the heart of downtown Columbus, Powell is a great area to live for those who enjoy the aspects of the city, while living in a small town. Powell has so much to offer itself through and provides many fun activities for its residents!
With the weather warming up, hiking through Highbanks Metro Park is the perfect activity for people of all activity levels. The trails provide a great opportunity for the who enjoy running, or if you are looking for a more relaxing afternoon take a leisurely walk on the overlook trail which features an observation deck 100 feet about the Olentangy River.
The Emily Traphagen Preserve is another opportunity for nature lovers to escape to the outdoors. This park has two loop trails about a half-mile each. It is located right next to the Scioto River and contains wetlands, meadows, and prairies!
The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium is located right in Powell and is home to over 9,000 animals and 650 species. The famous Jack Hanna helped bring the zoo to its current prominence when he became the director in 1978. Right next to the zoo is the Zoombezi Bay water park that sits on 22 acres. The Columbus Zoo provides entertainment all year long with its beautiful “Wildlights” exhibit in the winter. The zoo transforms into a winter wonderland when the park is decorated with more than 3 million lights.
Ill Manner Brewing Company is a nano-brewery located in Powell started by a group of friends who were passionate home brewers. The brewery is powered by a 3 Barrel all electric brewery and makes just 93 gallons at a time. The guys love to show people around the brewery and talk beer and always welcome visitors to their establishment. While they don’t serve food, they do have food trucks parked at the brewery certain days of the week.
The Olentangy Indian Caverns are another local outdoor experience that people of all ages will enjoy. The series of caves were formed millions of year ago by the force of an underground river. These caves were later put to use by the Wyandotte Tribe. You can explore three levels of the caves on a guided or self-guided tour and learn more about the history. The Olentangy Indians Caverns offer other activities such as a 50,000 sq. ft. animal encounter and petting zoo with adorable furry creatures! Gem mining and miniature golf are also available to try.
Powell is a beautiful city with great people! You will never run out of fun activities to do and will never have to travel far for a good time. Living at Powell Grand Communities will become a home in no time!
