Stilson Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
The Stilson neighborhood is bound on the east by Linworth Road and on the south by Snouffer Road. It is a distinctive neighborhood of elegant, contemporary homes. Impeccably landscaped lawns give a park-like feel to these estate homes.
Not surprisingly for such an exclusive neighborhood, several venerable country clubs are in close proximity. The York Temple Country Club was founded in 1924 by the Masons as a gathering place. While it is still owned by the Masons, membership is available for non-lodge members.
Brookside Country Club was founded shortly after, in 1927. The 260-acre club provides all the amenities one might expect to find in an upscale club: 18- hole golf course, an Olympic size pool, tennis courts, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. The Club house features both formal and casual dining.
There are some interesting natural areas close by along the Olentangy River. The Olentangy River Greenway with its 12.75 miles of trail runs just east of the Stilson neighborhood. There are nine entrance points to the trail, including Antrim Park. The lake at Antrim is stocked with rainbow trout each year. There are many other parks along the trail.
A short drive from Stilson is Alum State Park, with a 3,387-acre reservoir. Alum Creek Marina offers storage as well as short-term docking. Salt Fork State Park, a bit farther away, is another great recreation area.
Worthington Mall features high-end retailers such as Ann Taylor, Talbot’s, Pendleton, and JoS. A. Bank, and can be reached via the West Wilson Bridge.
The Columbus Art Museum has a fine permanent art collection as well as noteworthy temporary exhibits. The Museum features programs for adults and children.
Ohio State University is not far away, and there are several private liberal arts universities, including Capital University and Ohio Dominican University close to Stilson.
