The Columbus Recreation and Parks Department’s Operations and Maintenance Sections include Parks, Facilities, and Forestry. These sections are headquartered at 1533 Alum Industrial Drive and have expanded into the adjacent annex at 1511 Alum Industrial Drive where the Department’s warehouse is also located. This annex was improved from 2017 to 2021, including the installation of new motorized exterior garage doors, electrical equipment, and lights.
