A statement from the Executive Director
"Grove City is home to the third-largest travel economy in Franklin County thanks to our vibrant small business community (most of our 16 hotels are considered small businesses.) 83% of companies in the travel industry are small businesses. We can minimize the recovery time for the economy if we continue to patronize small businesses, supporting jobs for our neighbors and friends.
The COVID-19 outbreak naturally has many people worried about traveling outside of their home, let alone taking a trip to visit a community, but I'll quote Governor Dewine from March 13th when he reminded Ohioans to "explore the outdoors," reminding all to keep six feet from other people to minimize exposure. As we look for ways to spend our time safely during the coming weeks, find comfort in the Altogether Adventure® Grove City is known for; enjoy the fresh air as you wander through the Gardens at Gantz Park; get a dose of vitamin K on a stroll at Henceroth Park; have a family picnic at Scioto Grove Metro Park; say "hello" to the bison at Battelle Darby Creek Metro Park (stay six feet away from people and bison!); head to Breck Community Park so Fido can stretch his legs too! It's easy to fuel the economy and help small businesses when you grab lunch or coffee from a local restaurant and enjoy it as you visit a different park each week - shake off the cabin fever while you let your spirit soar. Inspire others to find unique ways to enjoy the solitude by tagging #AdventuresInSolitude on social."
