I've lived in Powell for a little over 2 years and I am planning to stay. Powell offers an excellent lifestyle including top schools, a beautiful landscape, if you're a foodie there is something so good for everyone, the roads are clear in the winter with few areas needing construction, the people are friendly yet busy, and the homes are very well built! Powell is close to downtown Columbus, Dublin Bridge District, & many more fun to visit areas. The parks are well placed, as well as bike paths. I feel safe anywhere in the area and leave vehicles out of garage with no worries. The area is growing with plentiful employment opportunities. Overall Powell is an amazing place to raise a family or live an active healthy lifestyle.
Powell is a small community that has everything for everyone! You can find a Farmer's Market in the spring and summer months, community swimming pool, skate park and also quaint shopping, dining and entertainment. There is a slight lack of diversity in Powell.
I really like living here. It's a clean town and most people are very friendly. Almost all of the neighborhoods are very family friendly. There are many things to do, including Powell Fest, visiting the Columbus Zoo, and going down to the shops at downtown Powell. There's some great resteraunts around. It's generally a pretty safe town, with sheriffs patrolling frequently. However, something that could make Powell even better is more sidewalks. My neighborhood doesn't have any sidewalks, so a lot of children are in the street during the warmer seasons. There is also some traffic with cars, bikers, and pedestrians all in the road.
