Dublin is a well-noted planned community of 50,000 residents in the Northwest corridor of Metro Columbus. In fact, its success has attracted the attention of many zoning departments from across the country to study Dublin’s master plan as a model for their own communities. Dublin boasts over 1,100 acres of developed parkland and 60 developed parks. Outdoor enthusiasts can explore wooded natural habitats and over 100 miles of bike paths while the robust community recreation center provides numerous yearlong activities to all residents. The recently developed Bridge Park is a bustling development of restaurants, shopping and nightlife which connects with the charming downtown area via a walking bridge over the Scioto River. Locally, Dublin is synonymous with The Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Course, founded by Columbus native Jack Nicklaus, and the Dublin Irish Festival, an annual music and cultural festival which attracts over 100,000 visitors.
