Dodge Park was acquired in 1852 and is an 18.462-acre community park in the Franklinton community. The Scioto Trail runs through Dodge Park and provides access to the Scioto Mile.
Dodge Skate Park is sixteen acres of extreme outdoor fun. Designed by Frank Hawk, father to famous skateboarder Tony Hawk, the park has three different drop-in bowls and a snake run. Needless to say, there is never a dull moment at this park. The three all concrete bowls are of different sizes, 3 feet deep, 4 feet deep, and 6 feet deep. The 4 foot bowl can function as a half-pipe, while the 6 foot bowl has intense “verte.” BMX, skateboarders and rollerbladers are welcome; the park is free to the public but is unsupervised.
