Columbus Metro Parks

Honda Wetland Education Area - Columbus, OH

Creative Leads

Our planning team brought to life the conceptual plan and program established by the Columbus & Franklin County Metro Parks and funded in part by The Honda Motor Company. 180 acres of wetlands were constructed and restored on this 970-acre park to provide the public a unique opportunity to view active wetlands. The project includes two new structures for educational opportunities for visitors of Glacier Ridge Metro Park. The new Orientation Shelter and restrooms were composed in part by a dismantled and relocated historic barn and provide a focal point for the Park. A two-story observation tower provides dramatic views of the wetlands, while a wetland sewage treatment cell further demonstrates environmental responsibility.
