Woodland Park was established at the turn of the twentieth century as one of the Columbus’ first planned, upscale suburban neighborhoods. Woodland Park was referred to as the “North Gateway to Franklin Park” and rapidly became home to many of the founding families of Columbus as well as entrepreneurs, business owners, industrialists, educators and artists. Numerous prominent citizens of Columbus, including nationally renowned artist Emerson Burkhart have called Woodland Park home.
The neighborhood is home to an eclectic mixture of exquisite architecture including Colonial, Federal, Arts and Crafts, Victorian, Tudor, Mission, Dutch Colonial, Colonial Revival, Greek Revival, Georgian Colonial, French Eclectic, American Foursquare and Cape Cod. The neighborhood is composed of homes, town-homes and apartments ranging in size from massive mansions to bungalows and from penthouses to studio apartments. This diverse mixture of homes makes Woodland Park a comfortable, affordable and attractive neighborhood to live in.
