Planning, Creation & ExpansionThe
City of Worthington began planning for a recreational pathway along the
Olentangy River in 1975. By 1977, this Class 1 bike path was completed
and also featured grassy open spaces, two neighborhood play areas and
neighborhood sports fields. In 1981, the Olentangy tennis courts were
added, and in 2006, the path was extended an additional mile to where it
now ends at Worthington Hills.
