Goodale Park is a public park in the Victorian Village area of Columbus. It was donated to the city in 1851 by Lincoln Goodale. The Friends of Goodale Park, a non-profit community group, have been requesting improvements identified in this project and have been integrally involved in the development of this project. Improvements will include new water connections for irrigation of community gardens and plantings.
