Westerville is known as a “city within a park” and a new park coming soon will further prove that. Edge Adventure Park, a 10.5-acre wooded ravine between Vesper Way and Cleveland Avenue will soon be transformed to serve a dual purpose for workforce recruitment, worksite wellness pursuits and corporate fitness and team-building opportunities. While the park is still in the conceptual phase, potential activities could include a ropes course, tree swings, frisbee golf, a fitness circuit, seasonal sledding and fishing, a children’s garden, fire pits, kayaking, zip lining and more.
Barrel & Boar Closed
With the latest news that Barrel & Boar closed their doors for an offer they couldn’t refuse, the community can’t help but wonder what will go in the iconic space of the old Westerville movie theatre building. While nothing has yet to be announced on what will replace the BBQ joint, be sure to check back as we’ll update as soon as we have any information of what’s to come. We’re sure it will be something exciting!
DiCarlo's Pizza Closed
DiCarlo's Pizza recently closed it's doors in both Westerville and Hilliard. The pizza chain came in with a bang and was the talk of the town with their Steubenville-style pizza, but due to unforeseen circumstances, had to close their doors for good. We will miss having their pizza in Westerville, but look forward to what's next to come for the space in Uptown.
