Park Hours:

This community park provides facilities for family-friendly activities, and Stockbridge Park includes a paved walking loop, two parking lots, a playground and an open shelter. 

In October 2020, Columbus Recreation and Parks Department acquired 11 acres of the former Stockbridge School on South Champion Avenue, next to Stockbridge Park, in the Far South neighborhood. This addition, purchased from Columbus City Schools, means the entire park is now 22 acres!

Columbus Recreation and Parks Department was awarded a Clean Ohio Conservation grant from the Ohio Public Works Commission to acquire the site and plant thousands of native trees on the site of the former school. In coordination with the Far South community, the department designed a sustainable, resilient forest that residents can access via a paved walking loop and mowed paths. Reforesting Stockbridge Park provides critical tree canopy to one of the city’s highest need communities.

To create this forest, in 2021, the old Stockbridge Elementary School building was demolished and the surrounding 2 acres of pavement were removed. In 2022, the department planted native wildflowers and grasses across the park, along with approximately 2,400 native trees. Most trees are planted in “pods” that are composed of a naturalized mix of different species, with grass walking paths between them. Individual trees have also been planted at the entrances on Lockbourne and South Champions, as well as to provide shade to park users around the playground, the open-air shelter, the parking lots and the paved walking loop.
