Sharon Woods Metro Park

When many of the Metro Parks were built, they existed in a netherworld -- what Downtown workers might once have considered "out there." Today, sprawl has closed the gaps between the urban core and the exurbs, surrounding many parks with development on all sides.

One of those parks is Sharon Woods, which has clung to its natural beauty in surprising ways. Even with its Westerville locale, the green space is a refuge with beautiful prairies, streams and, of course, woods.
