Welcome to Powell
Powell’s sweet small-town atmosphere paired with its modern-day amenities make it the perfect place to call home. The humble history of this hospitable city has served as its foundation for growth over the years. Powell’s steady progression can be seen through its thriving community of local businesses and an increasing number of residents—because who wouldn’t want to live in this lovely city?
Well-manicured neighborhoods, two highly rated school districts, and an active community are just a few of the reasons why Money Magazine deemed Powell as one of the best places to live in the country. Powell residents love to get out and about in the community, whether it be to stroll along the city’s scenic trails or explore the energetic downtown area. With easy access to the state capital of Columbus, Powell is the perfect compromise of simple living and big city chaos.

Live, Work, and Play in Powell
Powell students are served by the Olentangy School District, one of the fastest-growing districts in the country. The school district currently has more than 20,000 students enrolled and includes four high schools, five middle schools, 16 elementary schools, and a preschool program. Earning high praise from both its community members and the Ohio Department of Education, the school district received the highest rating of “Excellent with Distinction” on its most recent report card.
Parks & recreation
The City of Powell’s Parks & Recreation offers more than 200 diverse year-round activities for its residents. Bound to keep you up and moving, some of these activities include sporting events and exercise classes. For our right-brained residents, there are creative programs such as arts and crafts, cooking classes, and gardening guides. Powell’s nine award-winning parks truly have something for everyone—even if that something is just a trail leading to our downtown ice cream shop!
More than 90% of Powell’s taxpayers commute to other areas for their employment, especially Columbus within less than a half hour’s drive. However, Powell is still committed to the city’s own economic development. In 2019, The Ohio State University’s Wexner Medical Center developed an Outpatient Surgery Center in Powell. This medical center has significantly impacted Powell’s local economy and has brought hundreds of high-paying jobs to the city.
Shopping & dining
Several local shops and upscale restaurants have put down roots in Powell’s up-and-coming downtown district in recent years. Powell Liberty Antique Mall is a staple of the area, where you can find an ever-changing collection of rare antique items. When you get hungry, you can indulge in American classics at Liberty Tavern, then walk across the street after for a sweet treat at Beehive Bread Company. And if you want to feel like you’re sitting on the beach somewhere, then we recommend ordering a drink from Huli Huli Tiki Lounge.
