It is finally beginning to look and feel like Fall here in Dublin, Ohio! With more than 60 developed parks and countless outdoor hidden gems & attractions, Dublin is the perfect place to get outside and see fall color. Check out our list of 11 places to see fall unfold in Dublin, Ohio.
Darree Fields is one of Dublin’s largest parks with over 151 acres. It is home to 7 baseball diamonds, 18 soccer fields, 4 shelter houses, a dog park, an accessible playground, and public art. “Going, going… gone!”, a piece of public art commissioned by the Dublin Arts Council, consists of a bronze baseball bat striking a symbolic ball. The ball is shaped like an alarm clock and the trajectory of its path is marked by a series of colorful yellow discs emblazoned with the words “Going.” The final piece in the chain is a doorway that stands at the entrance to the woods, inviting visitors to step in to travel the path and gather the thoughts and memories they have let pass away over time.
