Chic Spotlight: Westerville

Lola helping her friend Will celebrate his birthday at a Westerville park shelter!

Columbus has so many unique neighborhoods. One that I just discovered, and am LOVING, is Westerville. Some friends of ours (with kiddos the same age as ours – newborn and toddler) just moved there, so we’ve been spending a lot more time in Westerville, exploring around town together.

Our first experience in Westerville was last summer in a beautiful park for their toddler’s birthday party. Our friends rented one of their shelters and it was the perfect place for all the kids to play, as the adults supervise and socialized … all without crashing their house! haha! 

The Westerville park shelter we had SUCH a fun time in!

Turns out, this park was one of Westerville’s 41 different parks and recreation facilities, including a state-of-the-art community recreation center! Click here to learn all about it!

Also, if you love art and music, there’s a ton of art and music organizations, clubs and events based in Westerville for you to get involved with. Click here to learn more about the organizations and clubs, and click here to learn about all their upcoming performances and events – including family friendly outdoor performances (we’ll definitely be going to Lion King Jr this summer!).

If you like to be active (or want to BE more active) Westerville is the perfect place – whether you want to go for a long shaded bike ride or be on a competitive sports team. Click here to learn more about their leagues, here for their parks/recreation camps, here for their aquatics options, and click here to learn about their other fitness/wellness options – like leisure trails or participating in over 70 group fitness or yoga programs.

There are actually three new communities in Westerville by M/I Homes, and they’re FABULOUS! There’s The Village at Central College, The Village of Minerva Park and Bigham Ridge. All three of these beautiful, new home communities are in the Westerville School District, which is the 11th-largest district in Ohio with more than 20 schools, including three high schools and three specialized curriculum K-5 schools for the Arts, Global Studies, and Math/Science. “Be it in the classroom with multiple National Merit Scholars annually, or on the field with state championships, excellence is the expectation not the goal,” the Westerville School District website says… gotta love that can-do attitude for our kiddos!

The homes in all three of these M/I Homes communities are all in different price points: $310’s – $470’s, $370’s – $550’s, and then The Village of Minerva Park (which is their newest) will be released soon, but it’s looking like it’ll be somewhere in the 200’s.

All of them have model homes that I’ll be learning more about in the next few weeks! I definitely recommend you stop by and see the model homes, too, or visit their website to learn more (see below!).
