Gahanna is a suburb of Columbus, Ohio, home to approximately 33,248 citizens. The city was founded along the Big Walnut Creek by John Clark in 1849. The city’s name is derived from a Native American term for three creeks that join into one, and was the original name of the Big Walnut Creek. The City of Gahanna’s Official Seal makes reference to the confluence of the three creeks with its inscription, “Three In One.”
Gahanna has worked hard in recent years to revitalize the downtown section of the city, known as “Olde Gahanna.” The Creekside Gahanna redevelopment and park extension project brought in new businesses to the area including restaurants, residences, office space, and public spaces, and a large parking garage. Under the more aggressive Brownsfields assessment and redevelopment program, Gahanna has undergone the task of cleaning up and closing down an abandoned landfill and demolition of abandoned properties that were an eyesore on the community.
Gahanna has worked hard to make their small town more aesthetically-pleasing, as well as to draw in new residents and business. These efforts have paid off handsomely, earning the city accolades like a spot on the “Top 100 Best Places to Live” list in 2007.
Today, Gahanna is thriving and continues its efforts for communal togetherness with a variety of family events, great parks, activities for all ages, and many amenities in the area. The beautiful neighborhoods are full of large family homes and apartments. Gahanna’s suburban lifestyle and close-knit community make this a great city to raise a family in. It’s easy to see why the city continues to grow as more families relocate to the area.
