Help re-imagine recreation options in Central Ohio with The RAPID Project

Do you visit parks, trails, and open space locations in your neighborhood and throughout Central Ohio? We’re looking for your thoughts on the future of outdoor and open space recreation opportunities in Central Ohio, and we need you!

This vision will create a cohesive plan for the improvement and development of the publicly owned land along the five riparian corridors in Franklin County. This plan is intended to be much more than a parks or greenspace master plan. It is a vision to reframe the connectivity of the region based on the natural geography defined by our waterways; to connect all Franklin County residents to the region’s natural resources, cultural, and economic resources for recreation, commuting, commerce, education, and relaxation.

RAPID 5 is a community led vision to plan for a future where our natural resources, parks, and rivers are integrated into the fabric of our community. Public and private partners throughout central Ohio have come together to realize this opportunity, and we need your help to shape the vision.

RAPID 5 is a unique opportunity to create a shared vision for an integrated open space network to benefit our economy, manage growth, provide access for recreation, education, and health; preserve natural resources and environmental health.

Through an online engagement platform, you can provide input, insight and information on a map, an idea board, or by taking a survey (or all three if you like). The success of this effort will rely on the guidance you provide.

Visit The Rapid Project website to learn more and get involved today!
