City Hall Square, Columbus, Ohio, USA, 2019[open in full screen]  

 
 

Next public space in Columbus, most of all three resembling urban square, is again unnamed space around Columbus City Hall.

This unnaming space is showing actually relation of urban planning in most North American cities towards pedestrian urban areas.

  Other notable structures around are Columbus City Council, Services Commission, Income Tax Division, Ohio Department of Education, US District Court, Columbus Police, luxury The Laveque Tower Residences. Best feature is however how it is connected to Battelle Riverfront Park, revitalized after removing a dam that existed there on Scioto River.   It was very interesting and memorable to see "A Myth of Discovery", story about first nation boy Pickaweekee that came to this spot at Scioto River bank, with his hound and involving unicorn, owl, eagle, lion and griffin in the events that followed, represented in a serial of statues of those imaginary creatures. Art is really all over Columbus.
