6 “Mud” Free Parks


Columbus is full of some amazing parks. Early spring in Central Ohio has a tendency to be rainy. We want to get the kids outside, but sometimes we want to skip the mud.

Here at Columbus Moms Blog, we wanted to give you a list of our favorite “mud” free parks.

So here we go!

  2. Wyman Woods Park

    • Wyman Woods Park is a newer park in the area.  There is not a lot of shade which makes it good for the early days of spring. There are baby swings and a handicap swing available along with fun rock structures or climbing and a pavilion that can be rented.
