Scioto Mile

Columbus Recreation and Parks Department

Columbus, Ohio


The Scioto Mile consists of over 145 acres of parkland, located the riverfront in downtown Columbus, Ohio.  The Scioto Mile connects downtown to the Scioto River through an integrated system of parks, boulevards, bikeways and pedestrian paths.


Bicentennial Park (a 4.7 acre park) is a part of the Scioto Mile system, and among its many features are a casual dining restaurant (The Milestone), and a state-of-the-art Performing Arts Pavilion.  HKI is the architect of record for the restaurant and the pavilion.
