Information about the area

The pictures are links to other web pages where you can learn more about each item. There is literally too much for me to list. This area is full of fun and exciting things to do. So this is definitely a very limited list.


The Columbus Clippers built an amazing minor league ball park, named Huntington Park, at Nationwide and Neil. The park has been named Ball Park of the Year several times since opening in 2009. Yet another exciting addition to our area!

The most notable nearby development is the Nationwide Arena, home of the Columbus Blue Jackets hockey team, and the associated Arena District, the nation's largest urban backfill project to date. Encompassing ninety-five acres and with the cost exceeding five hundred million dollars, this designated "entertainment district" provides plenty of places to eat and play. Surrounding the arena is a mixture of office, retail, and residential space, all made from brick to match surrounding structures (including OMP!) and downtown Columbus in general. The arena can easily be seen from OMP, being less than one block away. Frequent events like concerts and hockey make sure the arena has plenty of exciting activities to occupy your evenings.

The Arena District web site, put together and operated by Nationwide, contains detailed information on parking, restaurants, entertainment, and other Arena District features. Check here for all your Arena District information needs.

Marconi Blvd. gets its name from the inventor of wireless, Guglielmo Marconi. Building upon the theories of Heinrich Hertz, Marconi invented the technology that became the basis for much of modern communications and paved the way for almost every form of electronic communications we use today. The link takes you to the Wikipedia article about Marconi.

Also very close to OMP, less than one mile actually, is the new COSI, Columbus' excellent science museum. A stunning, revolutionaryrenovation and addition was done to the old Central High School, and on November 7th, 1999, it opened to the public amidst much publicityand accolades. It is sure to provide years of education and entertainment to Columbus residents and visitors.

Experience Columbus (Formerly the Greater Columbus Convention and Visitors Bureau) provides information on Columbus sights and convention information, as well as links to other Columbus informational web pages. Their offices and a visitor center are at 277 Nationwide Blvd., just blocks from One Marconi Place.
