The Promenade (Scioto Mile)

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.
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.
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.
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.
