Scioto Mile Reviews
Jazz and Rib Fest 2019 did not disappoint. Nice evening listening to Jazz and eating good food at Bicentennial Park and Genoa Park on the Scioto Mile. The ribs and chicken were great again this year. ... more »

A great small park! It's got lots of good places to sit, and it's on the bike path, so it's good for a quick walk. It's on both sides of the rivers, and the bridges have good pedestrian paths. I personally love the deer sculptures. It's right behind COSI, so it makes a great place to go after or eat packed food at. There isn't a big green space to play sports on or run around, but there are plenty of other parks for that. This park achieves it's purpose of being a nice place to enjoy time at perfectly!
It was a perfect evening for a stroll. Our son was on leave from the army, and it was a great place to talk and catch up. It was just beautiful and even had wonderful porch swings - great for a rest after a brisk walk.
