The Promenade (Scioto Mile)

79 Civic Center Dr.
Columbus, OH 43215
View on Map

The Promenade stretches along the east bank of the Scioto River, connecting Battelle Riverfront Park and Bicentennial Park. Built upon the former site of the Avenue of Flags, the Promenade features a stone colonnade with shaded swings, park benches, beautiful gardens, and tables designed for card games or chess.  The historic carved limestone balustrade, originally built as part of the 1920s floodwall project, has been fully restored to its original condition.

Huntington Plaza
Located in the center of the Promenade across from the Thomas J. Moyer Ohio Judicial Center, Huntington Plaza features seasonal flowers and three infinity-style fountains with 44 beautifully-sculpted, bronze fish spouting streams of water.

Coleman’s Pointe
Named in honor of Michael B. Coleman, Columbus’s longest serving mayor, Coleman’s Pointe extends outward from the Huntington Plaza.  This scenic overlook offers stunning views of the downtown riverfront and is the best vantage point for the Genoa Park Lighting across the river.

Lower River Walk
Along the water’s edge below Coleman’s Pointe, the Lower River Walk offers panoramic views of the Scioto Mile and downtown skyline.  The expansive walkway can host a variety of activities — from jogging and cycling to a casual stroll.  Built-in stone seating provides the perfect location to sit back and relax while enjoying the revitalized riverfront.

The Prow
Accented by a grove of birch trees, unique lantern lighting and stone benches, the Prow is a scenic riverfront overlook built on the east point of the former Town Street Bridge (1917-2009). The Prow gets its name from the nautical term for the forward-most part of a ship's bow.
