Northwood Park is a hidden gem in the University District. Tucked within Old North Columbus, the six blocks along Northwood, Oakland, and Patterson Avenues are shady streets that have become even more comfortable summertime oases over the last one hundred years. Houses built between 1905 and 1920 remain completely intact to this day. A variety of styles can be seen on Oakland and Northwood Avenues with four-square being the most common. These streets were regularly referred to as some of the most beautiful in Columbus.
Northwood Park features some of the more peaceful stretches of High Street, while still being close to the University and local businesses. The neighborhood is friendly with a long standing Garden Club, active Homeowners’ Association, and even a playgroup for youngsters. Northwood Park has been listed on Columbus’ Register for Historic Places to ensure the preservation of the neighborhood’s architectural character.
