The Hilliard community celebrated the next step on the Road to Recreation Friday in a groundbreaking ceremony for the Recreation and Wellness Campus. City officials also unveiled the new name for this facility, “The Well”, which will serve as a common gathering place for social and wellness activities.
The event, which also included a Touch-a-Truck with construction equipment, was held at the future site on Scioto Darby Road, just west of Municipal Park. City officials spoke on the important role this facility will play in community wellness by expanding Recreation and Parks offerings to residents.
The 105,000-square-foot Recreation and Wellness facility is expected to be completed in 2025. In addition, nearly 25,000 square feet of space within the facility will be dedicated to an integrated medical health and wellness center managed by The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. The center will offer rehabilitation and physical therapy.
