From a day spent with family at one of our interactive playgrounds to biking or running on a sunny evening at Hoff Woods Park or even touring the public art scene, there are countless ways to enjoy Westerville's park system. More than 650 acres of parkland and 51 miles of trails make pursuing a healthy, active lifestyle accessible for all. 

The Westerville Parks and Recreation Department has a variety of parks to fit the community’s needs. Neighborhood parks, wetlands and greenways are weaved throughout the City within walking distance of many residents.

There are 11 parks with shelters to rent for your next group gathering or celebration. If you are looking for a quiet place to fish, Heritage Park offers the perfect spot near Everal Barn while numerous fields and even a skate park are available to practice or compete. And even your dog even has a place to play at the Brooksedge Bark Park. To learn more about individual parks, amenities and locations, click here. 

Cycling, walking or jogging through Westerville is easy on the City's recreational trail system, the Westerville B&W (Bike & Walk Route.) All paths include half-mile markers and informational kiosks at the Westerville Sports Complex and Spring Grove North Park. Kiosks show your location and a map of the entire B&W system with markings of where you can take a break, find a drinking fountain, lock up bikes and find restrooms.

The Parks and Recreation Department values resident and visitor feedback. If you see an area of a park, path or facility such as a shelter that needs attention, please contact the Parks Maintenance Division at (614) 901-6590.
