Overview of Columbus
Though German Village has narrow streets and buildings that sit close together, you're never deprived of a great overhead view. You'll marvel at the sheer beauty of the neighborhood's red brick buildings contrasting the bright blue skies and dotted by the lush greenness of the many trees when you're out with your four-legged companion. Staying active and loving the outdoors almost as much as your pet won't be a problem when you live in an area that's as beautiful and easily walkable as German Village.
Enjoy nature with your pet
Your pet-friendly neighborhood in German Village will often be empty on the weekends, thanks to your proximity to the Scioto Audubon Metro Park, an expansive 120-acre park on the bank of the beautiful Scioto River. You and your dog will love lounging on the shore and admiring the sunlight dancing along the water's surface. But you won't stay seated too long, because there are plenty of recreational activities for you and your dog to enjoy.
You'll be able to go jogging with your furry friend along the park's trails. If you're not a fan of running shoes, feel free to bring your bike along for a weekend ride. Want to get away from rigid lines of manmade structures? That's not a problem, thanks to the park's hiking trails, which you and your dog will visit frequently. Surround yourself with the beautiful sights and wonderful sounds of nature, where your pet will have plenty of scents to sniff out and explore.
Another great way to keep yourself and your dog fit is to visit the park's agility courses. Spending your weekends here will be a rewarding experience that both you and your four-legged friend will love. Don't forget to show off for friends and family when they visit.
Don't worry about time
If you have a particularly busy weekend and don't have the time to visit the Scioto Audubon Metro Park, you'll still be able to take your dog out for a lovely stroll at Schiller Park. You never have to worry about a lack of access to great parks when you live in a pet-friendly apartment in Columbus.
Schiller Park is the second oldest public park in Columbus and boasts a recreation center, picnic areas and more. You and your dog will love taking a break from your walk and observing the high-energy action at the park's softball field, basketball or tennis courts. If your furry companion's a big fan of aquatic creatures, head over to the nearby fish pond.
Not enough nature for you or your pet? Lou Berliner Park is within walking distance and features walking trails, where you can take a quick stroll and allow your dog to enjoy all that nature has to offer without committing to the more serious trails of Scioto Audubon Metro Park.
Enjoy the neighborhood
What's living in a neighborhood called German Village without attending the annual Oktoberfest? It's a great way to meet your neighbors and a wonderful opportunity for your pet to participate in a lively event. You may be the newcomer, but you can fully expect your dog to be the star of the show at this festival.
Weekends will always be enjoyable when you live in a cheap apartment in German Village, where you and your pet will love the buildings, natural sights and people.
