Who said playgrounds are just for kids? Thanks to a partnership between Gravity developers and Land-Grant Brewing Co., adults will soon have a place of their own in Franklinton.
The project — which will take over an empty lot on McDowell and W. State streets — will be called Gravity Experience Park and will be operated by Land-Grant.
Construction will begin soon, and events are expected to begin at the park in October.
Gravity Experience Park will have the following amenities that allow for year-round enjoyment:
- An ice skating rink in the winter that will convert to pickleball courts in the warmer months
- A concert stage
- Fire pits with seating areas
- A bar
- Public artwork
The long-term plan
“We envision this park being like a town square — a place that brings people from Franklinton and all over Columbus together in all these fun and amazing ways,” said Land-Grant president Adam Benner in a news release.
Adam and his team successfully curated the Land-Grant beer garden and Wintergarden over the years, and are excited “to use that experience on a blank slate to create one-of-a-kind experiences that we have not been able to do in the past.”
