Make a Splash at FountainSide!


Summer fun is just around the corner! The weather is warming up and the sun is shining bright on the Mile. The Scioto Mile Fountain presented by the American Electric Power Foundation is now on for the season and we are ready to make a splash! In less than a month, FountainSide presented by Sunny 95 (94.7 FM) will be here to fill your summer afternoons. New this year, pedal your way to a healthier lifestyle with the Molina Healthcare Smoothie Bicycle. We cannot wait to enjoy FREE ice cream from the Sunny 95/Meijer Treat Truck, and as always Donatos Pizza will be on site for you to purchase pizza and beverages!

Join us June 3rd for the first FountainSide of the season! Dive into the summer season for themed activities, games, arts and crafts on Wednesdays from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in Bicentennial Park. Join Local Matters to learn how to grow healthy foods, what healthy foods need to survive, as well as what healthy foods do for our bodies. Lowe’s Plant & Grow Workshop will teach you how to create your own garden all summer long. Explore the life of wild animals with the Columbus Zoo & Aquarium, Ohio Wildlife Center, P.T. Reptiles, and The Turtle Lady. Get crafty with OSU Urban Arts Space, Thurber House, Franklin Park Conservatory, and more! Make sure to stop by and see the Fountain Frog for its first appearance on June 17. Special thanks to Sunny 95 for their continued support of FountainSide. Join us every week and make sure to check our schedule here!
