Frank Fetch Park in German Village

As I mentioned in my last post, I am dog sitting this week for a friend in German Village. This weekend, Chase and I took a walk around German Village after binge watching HGTV for a few hours (this has become a regular thing to do this summer). We have walked around the area several times (& I have blogged about this corner of Columbus a lot), but we had never seen Frank Fetch Park. It is a quaint park in the residential neighborhood surrounded by homes. It looks as if the early architects of German Village could have fit houses on the lot, but instead a park was made.

Doesn’t the park seem so adorable? The last photo is the purse I have been using lately. It was a birthday gift from Chase’s mom and it is just as colorful as the garden! The text says “You are human and divine. Yes”. I have already received several compliments on it while carrying it around. It will probably be featured in some outfit photo later on.Β Frank Fetch Park is such a wonderful little space! It is so colorful and peaceful. It was a great find on our walk.

Have a great Thursday!

  1. Hi Ashley!

    At one time there were houses on the lot where Frank Fetch Park stands, but by the 1960s they had fallen into disrepair and needed to be demolished. In 1966, the Mayor of Columbus enoucraged the newly formed German Village Society to covert the .2 acre lot into a park. Inspired by the social gardens in Munich, the pocket park is now the only park in Columbus with a honey bee hive.
