Three Creeks Metro Park
Our mission of visiting more metro parks around Columbus continues!
We didn't go to Three Creeks Metro Park today for any special event. We brought a picnic lunch, followed the directions, and just hit the road.
Since we live in Bexley, catching highway 33 south is a breeze. A few minutes later, we found ourselves at the Huron Pond. Soon, we discovered that this park is more extensive and spread out than we had thought. There was a 'nature playground' area where we had wanted to check out, but it seemed a bit out of our way (from Huron Pond), so we will have to check that out next time.
The park was very well used, with numerous bicyclists, families, and fishermen! There are plenty of trails, too, for short or long walks around the creeks and ponds.
We will go back there, for sure, with more time to explore, and maybe a fishing rod or two. How nice to have an easy access to some natural area so close by.
