A fast-growing bedroom community of 13,000 people 14 miles north of Columbus, Powell has enjoyed significant residential development over the past 40 years. Many of the city’s neighborhoods, some of which are gated, include oversized lots and mature trees. Downtown Powell welcomes residents and visitors alike with antique stores, independent shops, restaurants, a brewery, winery and more. And things can get wild in Powell … it’s minutes away from the nationally renowned Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. The city maintains nine public parks, many of which connect to subdivisions via multi-use trails, offering sports fields and courts, pavilion shelters, a splash pad and amphitheater.
