Some of these include the Columbus Zoo, Zoombezi Bay, Safari Golf Club, Ohio Wildlife Center and the O'Shaughnessy Dam that includes an overlook platform of the water table at Glick Park
SHAWNEE HILLS VILLAGE HISTORY
The Shawnee Hills Additions, which collectively totaled over 3,600 lots were platted in the 1920’s as a resort fishing community on the O’Shaughnessy Reservoir of the Scioto River. Lots were small, typically 35’ by 70’, exclusive of the road easement. Many of the platted streets were initially constructed to access the lots, but no utilities were installed because no public water or sewer was available.History
In 2016 the Village of Shawnee Hills built a community pavilion located adjacent to the Shawnee Hills Police Department and children's playground. This pavilion is for the year round enjoyment of the village residents. The park and pavilion are open during daylight hours.
The City of Columbus owns approximately 425 acres of land around the O’Shaughnessy Reservoir.
In 1927, the Columbus Zoological Park opened with a small collection of donated animals.
The Ohio Wildlife Center (OWC) “is a leader in wildlife rehabilitation and conservation education.”
