Contribute Today

Please become a member of the Friends of the Scioto Mile by making a tax deductible contribution today.

City parks like the Scioto Mile are truly transformative, and across the country signature parks are shown to improve quality of life for locals and visitors alike. They boost commerce, help create jobs, increase property values, and bring fun and beauty to the community.

Downtown Columbus is the heart of central Ohio, and the core of our Capital City. It is the business, cultural, arts and government center of central Ohio. It is the place where our community comes together to work, to enrich our minds, to exercise our bodies, to relax and play. When downtown is strong and vibrant, we all are proud to call it our home.

Become a Friend of the Scioto Mile and support free children’s programming, concerts and dance performances in Bicentennial Park.
