This bold vision connects over 30 communities with 146 miles of waterways, provides access to 38,300 acres of parks, and links neighborhoods with 143 trail miles. When complete, every resident in the region will be within 1.5 miles of a park or greenway.
RAPID 5 Project
The RAPID 5 Project vision, created by the ULI Columbus and the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, is a vision for one regional park system along our five major waterways. The idea was to study knitting all five Central Ohio waterways into a single cohesive greenway system—one infused with exciting new ideas, expanded access, and community voices to benefit all of Central Ohio.
The Community’s Vision
ULI RAPID 5 is a unique opportunity to create a shared vision for an integrated open space network. It is a vision to reframe the connectivity of the region based on the natural geography defined by our waterways; to connect all Franklin County residents to the region's natural resources, cultural, and economic resources for recreation, commuting, commerce, education, and relaxation.
