Godown Park is a 10 acre park primarily developed as a dog park. The park consists of a one acre small dog area, a four-and-a-half acre large dog area and also includes benches, a dog water fountain, pathways winding through the park and a paved parking lot. The park is open from dawn to dusk. Please comply with all Dog Park Rules.
The dog park opened to the general public on Saturday, July 14, 2012 and is a partnership between the cities of Worthington and Columbus. Considerable support and fund raising have been provided by W.O.O.F.(Worthington Organized Off-leash Friends).
A small portion of the park is also used by the Worthington Parks & Recreation Department as a tree nursery. Native Ohio trees, such as sycamore, oak, buckeye and hickory, are being grown there and will later be transplanted along the river in the Olentangy Parklands to replace older trees as they die out.
