Wilson Road Urban Campgrounds

The transformation of The Wilson Road Parkland to Wilson Road Urban Camp Ground is designed to do three things; activate the currently underutilized 47 acre parkland, create a lasting and impactful attraction for both tourists and residents, and lead the charge to better perceptions of West Columbus.

West Columbus has an outstanding opportunity for economic revitalization, green space reclamation, and an increase in safety and wellness, centered around the activation of a 47 acre park along the new Camp Chase Trail. Programmatic decisions such as a community oriented bike facility, a campground for drawing in visitors, and a parkland aimed at improving the overall health of the surrounding neighborhoods will ensure that this park be transformed from a undesirable hazard to a shining asset.

With proper redevelopment and community support, this previously underutilized space will act as the southern gateway into Columbus from the new Ohio to Erie Trail. Through a combination of unique architectural interest and its prime location next to the Hollywood Casino, this one of a kind camping experience is sure to be a success. By claiming ownership of its relationship to the trail, the West Side can expect an influx of a new market audience filling its shops and restaurants.

The highlight of the new Wilson Road Park will be a Community Center and Bike Facility that will act as an education center for anyone using the trail. The facility also provides necessary amenities such as, showers, restrooms, lockers, and food, it will help improve the image of the West Side. In doing so people from all over the state and beyond will start to understand how great the West Columbus neighborhoods are.
