The Metro Park that makes you feel most like you've gotten well out of town and into the wilderness. – The Grounds
Highbanks has more than 1,050 acres of mature forest, eight miles of hiking trails, a wonderfully informative nature center, ample space for picnics and grand views that you might not expect to discover in Central Ohio.

History Lesson
Highbanks is named for the 100-foot shale bluffs that the park is centered around, along the Olentangy River. There are multiple scenic views, and the primary observation deck has been designated as a National Natural Landmark. You can find it by following the signs to "The Overlook."

Bird lovers can do some watching here at a pond or visit the Raptor Center to see hawks and owls that have been rescued by the Ohio Wildlife Center. Canoeing, fishing, in-line skating, biking, sledding and cross-country skiing are permitted in designated areas of the park.
