Storywalk 

We are proud to partner with the Grandview Heights Public Library on two StoryWalks you can find at Wyman Woods and C. Ray Buck Park. StoryWalk is a delightful, innovative way for children and adults to enjoy reading, activities, and the outdoors at the same time.

Skate Park

Grandview Heights Skate Park is located in the Municipal Pool parking lot, 1350 Goodale Blvd. This is the places to be if you are a skateboarder or in-line skater (no bikes allowed). There is a variety of equipment available between late Fall and early Spring during the hours 8:00am and dark. Rules and Regulations are posted at the skate park and must be followed for skating privileges. 

Wallace Gardens 

The gardens at the southwest corner of Grandview Avenue and Goodale Boulevard offer residents of Grandview Heights and Marble Cliff a place to bend and dig just as they did when Victory Gardens were a parotic war effort, not just a hobby. Many Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff residents currently stake claim to quarter plot, half plot, or full plots in the approximately 65,000 sq. ft. expanse of City-owned property called the Wallace Gardens. Wallace Gardens sits on land that was donated to the City by photographer, Columbus Bicycle Co. owner and real estate developer George Urlin in the 1930s. Mr. Urlin purchased the land now called "Wallace Gardens" and also coined the term "Grand view" for a view from his mansion on Goodale Boulevard where the Summit Chase Condos now stands according to the Grandview Heights/Marble Cliff Historical Society.

Pets in Parks

In Grandview Heights we love our furry friends. The map above lays out the pet-friendly parks in our City. Please be a responsible pet owner and clean up after your pet and keep them under control at all times. Certain parks, including Pierce Field, McKinley Field, Wyman Woods (except on the perimeter path only) and C. Ray Buck Sports Park, are posted “No Dogs” and as such owners are not permitted to allow their pets into these parks. This helps keep playing fields and playground equipment areas clean and safe for our children and community at large.

  • For details, see section 505.06 of the Codified Ordinances of the City of Grandview Heights. City Ordinance 505.04 states that “no person, being the owner or having charge of any dog, cat, or other domestic animal shall permit it to run at large upon any public property, including sidewalks, rights of way and streets, or upon the premises of another.” 
  • Failure to clean up after your pet is not only disrespectful to your neighbors, but also illegal (Section 505.05 of the Codified Ordinances) and poses a health hazard. Humans and their pets are susceptible to a host of parasites and other illnesses that can be transmitted via fecal waste; these diseases include Hepatitis A, hookworms and others. Children are especially susceptible to such illnesses. Please be responsible and clean up after your pet.
