Canal Winchester is your quintessential small Ohio town.

Family Fun In Canal Winchester, Ohio

Canal Winchester is a great place to raise kids. Not only is our little town safe, with friendly, caring neighbors, but we also have tons of things for families to do and enjoy. 

If you have artistic kids, check out Square Canvas. They call themselves a “social art studio”, where kids and families can join a class in splatter painting, acrylic pour painting, guided painting, woodcut, and more. Moms can enjoy a “paint and sip” event, and this is even a great place for your kiddo’s next birthday party. 

Slate Run Farm is a historic working farm that’s pleasantly stuck in the 1880s. Their website says it perfectly: “Experience first-hand what life was like on an Ohio farm. As you stroll through the gardens, barns and farmhouse, you will see the farm’s costumed staff and volunteers going about their daily chores.” 

Kids can meet some geese, horses, pigs, turkeys, sheep, and even an orange farm cat named Chester. 

If your family loves the outdoors, you’ll have to check out the new McGill Park, just on the cusp of downtown. Complete with sports fields, hiking trails through the woods and over chestnut creek, McGill park is also a fantastic place for kids to get their wiggles out on the playground.

Looking for a more rugged hiking experience? Chestnut Ridge Metro Park offers beautiful sweeping views of downtown Columbus in the distance – from the westernmost foothill of the Appalachian Mountains.   Chestnut Ridge also allows children to fish in the ponds, and for dirt bikers to take advantage of their dirt bike trail. 

For those hot summer days, cool off in the Canal Winchester pool and grab a sweet treat at Dairy Queen, a short walk from our new homes in downtown Canal Winchester.
