Village of Minerva Park

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Greater Columbus Realty #2008000975

The quality of life in Minerva Park can best be described as tranquil and serene. It has narrow, tree-lined streets that give you a true "community" atmosphere and take you back to a time when life moved at a much slower pace. Minerva Park is actually its own village, located northeast of Columbus, Ohio between Columbus and Westerville. The community was named for the Minerva Amusement Park, which operated here from 1895 to 1902 and had up to 25,000 visitors daily during its peak period.
