In partnership with the Griswold Center

This year’s bus tour schedule will feature our four popular itineraries, with each tour being offered on a Friday and a Saturday over the summer.

The Neighborhoods #1 Tour will be offered both Friday, April 17th at 1 pm and on Saturday, May 16th at 1 pm.

Learn how various neighborhoods have interacted in the development of Worthington from Village to City.  This tour will begin on the west side of the Olentangy River and explore the histories of Plesenton, Linworth and the Beechview/MA Rusk subdivisions. Then we will cross back over the river and go south and hear the stories behind Davis Estates and Walnut Grove Cemetery, the development of Chaseland and Colonial Hills.  (The entire tour takes place on the bus.)

Each tour is $14 per person, and when registration opens guests should register through the Griswold Center in person or online through Worthington Parks & Recreation (use “Recreation Registration” link on Worthington.org).

Other tours offered this summer will include:

Neighborhoods #2 (Saturday, April 25th & Friday, May 15th at 1 pm); Historic District (Friday, June 26th & Saturday, July 25th at 1 pm); Worthington, Flint & the Underground Railroad (Saturday, June 27th and Friday, July 24th at 1 pm)
