The Columbus Metro Parks are teaming up with Wagenbrenner Development to create a one-of-a-kind park with a nearby residential and commercial area. They’re calling it Project QT.
A quarry near Marble Cliff will be dubbed the Metro Parks’ 20th park. Some of Columbus’ most recognizable buildings and structures were built from the limestone extracted from the quarry, including the Ohio Statehouse, Ohio Stadium, and the LeVeque Tower.
From mountain biking, paddle boarding, kayaking, hiking, to rappelling, this park will provide Columbusites with a new spot to enjoy all of their favorite outdoor adventures.
“This Metro Park’s remarkable landscapes of deep quarried lakes adjacent to the river feature changes in elevation and rocky outcrops that will provide endless fun and adventure for the residents of Franklin County,” said Tim Moloney, Metro Parks Executive Director.
But it’s not just about an awesome park, it’s about creating a new, amazing place to live. Wagenbrenner Development will build a bunch of mixed-use properties close-by so residents are only a stone’s throw away from this natural wonderland.
“To find hundreds of acres of undeveloped land within Columbus city limits is once in a lifetime and we are excited to be working with Metro Parks to bring this unique opportunity to Columbus and its surrounding communities,” said Mark Wagenbrenner, President, Wagenbrenner Development.
