Wanted to give a little information on the neighborhood where our house is located. It is called Harrison West and is directly west of Victorian Village, about 2 miles north of downtown Columbus. While Mary and I have lived or worked in the Victorian Village/Short North area for most of our time in Columbus, we are learning a great deal about Harrison West thanks to our friends and neighbors Clinton & Becky Reno. They purchased a home directly behind ours maybe 5 months ago (yes, they purchased theirs first, so we are obviously copying them). Through the Reno's we have learned about the plans for Harrison Park, a 4+ acre park being constructed along the Olentangy River. When completed, it will be less than 2 blocks from our house. It is designed to include bike path connector and a pool! Now, this is a different park than Batelle Park, the greenspace located directly in front of our house. So for an historic neighborhood, we are very fortunate to have new parkland under development.
