The North Linden neighborhood of Columbus is located on the city's north side. The west end of the neighborhood hugs against the highway, making travel deeper into the city or out of it easy for residents with a vehicle. Along the highway there is a train track for those who wish to use public transportation. So whether its by train or automobile, travel throughout Columbus and its neighborhoods is convenient.
The neighborhood is home to several parks, all of which vary in size. Kenlawn Park, for example, features playgrounds and ball fields sprinkled amidst its green space. Go for a picnic and stay for a game. The Columbus Recreation and Parks Department offers sports teams for both kids and adults. They provide summer camps, after-school programs and arts camps for children. The department has also promoted a bike-sharing program. There are several pick-up locations around town where residents and visitors can purchase a 24-hour membership to take and use a bicycle. The first 30 minutes with the bike are free. After that, a fee accrues every half hour. Each bike has a code that is used to track the amount of time spent on the road.
The Northern Lights Shopping Center is located in North Linden for those who love to shop. With groceries and retail, this is the place to stop for all your needs.
