Welcome to Gahanna
Plenty of parkland to explore, lovely neighborhoods to live in, and ample opportunities for business growth are just a few reasons why Gahanna was named one of the "Best Hometowns" by Ohio Magazine. The city's friendly environment is ideal for first-time homebuyers, while its first-class accommodations make it the perfect place to settle down and stay forever! Just eight miles from downtown Columbus and mere minutes from the state capital's international airport, the world is within reach when you live in Gahanna.
Gahanna: "Three in One"
You can find Gahanna where Alum, Big Walnut, and Blacklick Creeks meet—which explains its name, meaning "three in one." Set against the backdrop of these sparkling creeks, Gahanna has more than 750 acres of parkland available for outdoor adventures. Rich in diverse heritage, this city has preserved its diversity through many years' worth of developments. Here, you'll love exploring historic attractions, five-star restaurants, and high-quality shopping destinations.

Gahanna's 750+ acres of spacious parks and 17 miles of scenic trails are the perfect resources for physical and mental wellness. It's rare to travel down city streets and see green spaces on all sides, yet you'll find just that in Gahanna. The Gahanna Department of Parks & Recreation welcomes all community members to utilize its parks through a variety of activities and events. During the warmer months, younger residents can look forward to summer day camps along with several youth sporting events.
Feeling hungry? Gahanna's restaurant scene is as diverse as the community itself, with cuisine offered from South America to Europe. Try Venezuelan favorites at Arepazo Tapas and Wine, where you can order tapas, empanadas, and much more. Travel to the other side of the world—or really just down the street—to Lola & Giuseppe's Trattoria, a mom-and-pop Italian restaurant serving up homemade pasta and fresh seafood. If you're in the mood for something a bit more traditional, you can find comfort in the American fare at The Old Bag of Nails Pub.
Served by the Gahanna-Jefferson Public School District, Gahanna has seven elementary schools, three middle schools, and one centralized high school.

With class sizes capped at 28, the school district prides itself on providing students with individualized attention from teachers.
Gahanna residents enjoy a variety of year-round events, many of which are held along Creekside Park in the downtown district. Celebrate Gahanna's greenest day of the year at Herb Day, where even the most seasoned gardeners will be impressed by the marketplace's plant offerings. Herb Day is followed by the Creekside Jazz and Blues Festival, and then the community's July 4th Freedom Festival marked by a spectacular firework display. Later in the year, residents can look forward to the Holiday Light Parade!
