Create an itinerary including Glacier Ridge Metro Park
Glacier Ridge was named for the end moraine or glacial debris left behind when the glaciers retreated some 12,000 to 17,000 years ago. Much of the 1,037-acre park was once covered with farmland. Visitors can traverse a boardwalk through the Honda Wetlands Area or climb a 25-foot observation tower to see waterfowl and other animals. Walk, jog or bike the paved 3 mile Marshhawk trail, or the paved 2.5 mile Ironweed trail (not a loop so out and back is 5 miles). Bring your disc and play the 18 hole disc golf course. There is a playground for the kids, along with picnic tables, grills and a first come first serve picnic shelter. Entrance to the park is free, in thanks to the tax levy supported by Franklin County voters.

  • We enjoyed our trip to Glacier Ridge. My kids (9&5) loved the play area in the woods with the log structures they could play in. The wooden climbing area was also a hit. And of course, they enjoyed...

  • Visited Glacier Ridge Metro Park in Plain City on a nice winter day in December when there was not much ice on the trails and I was able to cover the full park riding my bike. The park runs north...

  • Love our Central Ohio Metro Parks! Today I took my grandson for a sunrise picnic and stayed for the play structures. We intended to watch sunrise from the tower, but came in the wrong entrance. Lacking time to return to that entrance, we watched from just beyond the dog park. The picnic tables there were handy, and he liked seeing the dogs. We will definitely return to watch from the tower another day!
  • We visited the park for the first time today for a birthday party. It was great. They have a lot of tails for walking and biking. The play equipment for the kids was different than what you see at other parks. They had a lot of fun. It also has a large dog park. We also checked out the obstacle coarse for kids and adults. It was fun and a good workout.
