Ambitious Village Center Plans Becoming Reality

New Albany’s plans to reinvent Village Center as an inviting, pedestrian-friendly hub of activity that brings the community together, contributes to a vibrant, active lifestyle and embraces the founding principles of education, culture, health and the environment are quickly becoming a reality and improving the community’s quality of life. 

Creating Connections at the New Rose Run Park

Construction begins this fall on Rose Run Park, a key civic asset that will foster connections among people and with the environment. When it is completed in late 2019, a creek with overgrown brush bordering Dublin-Granville Road will be transformed into a green oasis for recreation, relaxation, exercise and entertainment. The park provides a critical link between Market Square, the New Albany-Plain Local Schools’ learning campus and the McCoy Community Center for the Arts. Get the details and construction updates.
