Retirement is a great opportunity to start traveling and seeing new sights. If you don’t want to go too far way from your community, you’re in luck because Friendship Village of Dublin is in a vibrant part of Columbus that has many unique sites to visit and explore. To see something you’ve never seen before, look no farther than our own nearby neighborhood!
Giant Dancing Rabbits of Ballantrae Park
It’s not every day you get to see a giant statue of three dancing rabbits, which is why this unique site is definitely worth checking out. The rabbits can be found at Ballantrae Park in Dublin. You can make it a game and try to find the unique household items molded into each rabbit!
Indian Run Falls
If you enjoy spending time in nature, Indian Run Falls should be added to your “to visit” list. Once home to the Wyandot Tribe, Indian Run Falls now has nature trails, observation platforms, a bridge and shelter houses to give visitors the best view of the scenic waterfalls and streams.
Field of Giant Corn Ears
This may be one of Ohio’s most quirky attractions. The Field of Giant Corn Ears was created as an ode to the former farmer who owned the land, Sam Frantz. The statues were built to remind residents of the area’s agricultural heritage.
Another unique site to see in Dublin is the Chief Leatherlips Monument. This sculpture is dedicated to the Wyandot Indian Chief, a trusted peacemaker among his tribe. Visitors can see the sculpture in Scioto Park and be a part of Ohio’s rich Native American History.
This list is just a small start of activities that Dublin has to offer. Grab a friend and start exploring today!
