I absolutely love Westerville. There are so many things to do around town. Some examples, we have two swimming pools, two golf courses, a mini golf course, disk golfing and many parks. Hoover dam is a great place you can take your family on a walk that has great scenery. Hoff park has a playground for kids, tennis courts, basketball courts and baseball diamonds. It's also outlined by a bike path. On every 4th Friday of the month, commonly known as Uptown Westerville is where 4th Friday is held. 4th Friday is a festival where people sell crafts, local goods. They provide live entertainment and things for the kids whether that's balloon artist or a blow up bounce house. Westerville is right in the center of surrounding towns that makes the commute time easy. It's located 10 minutes from polaris and about 10 minutes away from easton. You can always find something to do in Westerville.
Westerville is a city people desire to live as it fits the bill for every category of life. The emergency response such as police, fire and medical services are always there on time when called upon thus making Westerville a clinical city to reside in. Westerville has very proud heritage and roots, a traditional city with many trees hence referred to as "Tree city USA. Westerville has restored and renovated community treasures like the historic Everal Barn.
There are lots of fun in Westerville. Apart from recreational facilities, there are also professional bike races, music and arts festival, concert in the parks, etc.
