Gahanna is the “Herb Capital” of Ohio, so it’s only fitting that there’s a sizable herb garden in front of city hall.
It offers brick paths, with an overhead trellis entwined in what seem to be pea vines, and lots of different garden spaces featuring a wide variety of herbs, from culinary to medicinal. A garden shed and brightly-colored benches make playful backdrops for taking portraits, and depending on the time of year, you may find fruits and vegetables ripening as well. While the garden is not that large, it feels a lot bigger due to the variety of areas and plants it has to offer.
With a group of at least 6, you can schedule a private guided tour of the garden. Cost: $3 per person. See website for details.
Of course, there’s more to do in Gahanna when it comes to herbs. So if this garden piques your interest, learn more from the Ohio Herb Education Center.
