Who is paying for the facility?

NexusPark is jointly owned by the City of Columbus and Columbus Regional Health. Each entity has its own source of funding to pay for the development of the facility.

Will we be allowed to walk inside the facility during renovation and after opening?

Yes. It is the goal of the City and CRH to maintain a “walking path” – even during construction. Walkers may be re-routed at times so we ask that you pay attention to any signs for safety purposes. Walking hours are from 6 am – 7 pm Monday – Saturday, and 6 am – 5 pm Sunday.

You can find an updated walking route map here.

Will there be new restaurants and retail in the renovated facility?

The City of Columbus and Columbus Regional Health are working with a leasing agent on selecting and recruiting restaurants and retail for the facility.

We have opened a survey to get your opinion on the types of restaurants and retail you would like to see in the new facility. Give us your thoughts here.

When will the facility be open?

Based on current schedules, the Parks Administrative spaces will be open in the fall of 2023 and the Indoor Fieldhouse is scheduled to be completed in late 2023. The first Columbus Regional Health practice is planned to open in Fall 2022.

I’m interested in scheduling a tournament or event at NexusPark. Who should I contact?

Please use our Contact Form to submit your request. At this time, we are not taking reservations, but we will have a member of our team reach out to you about future availability.

Will there be activities besides sports?

Many people believe NexusPark is strictly a sports complex. The Fieldhouse, which is one component of NexusPark, is a sports and events venue that will host a multitude of different types of sporting and non-sporting events. While it will be host to many local, regional, and state sports tournaments, we also hope that it will become known as a venue fit to host trade shows, conferences, graduations, and large-scale community events.

In addition to the fieldhouse, the Columbus Parks and Recreation Department will have a fitness area, conference rooms, multi-purpose rooms for youth and adult programming and activities (such as table tennis, Pickleball, art classes, e-sports, and more), plus complementary retail partners, and restaurants, and a new three-acre park plaza.

Columbus Regional Health will complement the facility with a variety of health and wellness-related services that individuals can access conveniently.

Is Dunham’s staying?

Yes – based on the current lease arrangement.

What types of services will Columbus Regional Health have at NexusPark?

Columbus Regional Health plans to have a wide offering of primary care and specialty care offerings along with lab, therapy and personalized navigation and wellness services.

Are memberships required to use NexusPark?

The NexusPark facility common areas will be open to the general public for access and use. There are areas managed by both Columbus Parks and Recreation Department and Columbus Regional Health that will be access-controlled, and therefore require appointments, rental agreements, memberships, and/or registrations for use.  As more details are finalized, we will post the updates on the website.

What work is currently being done on the CRH portion of the site?

Interior demolition is underway and walls are being removed.

When do you expect the interior demolition to be finished? 

Interior demolition is anticipated to be complete late spring/ early summer.

What do you expect the timeline will be for construction?

Current expected timeline for the construction completion and subsequent CRH occupancy is targeting for Q4 of 2023. Of course, this process is contingent upon procurement of materials and resources as availability and lead times continue to shift within the market.

Will there be Pickleball?

Yes – there is always room for Pickleball!
