Worthington Ohio real estate


Riverlea is not a rectangle

In my mind Riverlea has four sides.  Three sides touch Worthington and the westside is of course the Olentangy River. 

I made this map so it may not even be totally accurate but Riverlea is no rectangle.

Riverlea is a village in Franklin County Ohio.  Riverlea is totally residential.

Riverlea is pronounced River - lee

Is Riverlea walkable?

Seems like a nice area back by the river and the park...perhaps a bit of quiet!

Quiet is relative.  One of my close friends lives on High St. in Riverlea... not so quiet but a fun place to hang out and watch the world go by on High.  There is an airport west of Riverlea... the OSU Airport... the planes go right over Riverlea and Worthington and some Worthington and Riverlea residents are not so happy that it is not as quiet as it once was.  The airport has been there a long time but improvements at some point made it a not so quiet neighbor anymore.  It is not the big airport in Central Ohio!  The other side of the river from Riverlea, the lake and parks there is a major parkway (the kind you drive on...) 315 and depending on cloud cover, the time of year and time of day you may be able to hear that traffic in Riverlea.  Gosh I feel like I am writing a disclosure.  Riverlea  is where it is since the 1930s. It was developed in the 1930s with relatively big lots and a "real landscapey"  feel. Lots on the Olentangy River in the city of Worthington (north of Riverlea)  are similar in some ways to Riverlea, bigger than the original Village lots in Worthington... Riverlea is a wonderful community... Quiet is relative.

Maureen - Great map!  The accuracy is perhaps not as import as the concept it delivers!  Yup ... pretty much ... Riverlea is NOT a rectangle!  AND ... I'm really smiling when I wrote that ... wondering what scenario brought up the post!

I  keep telling people over and over that the Village of Riverlea has Worthington on three sides and the fourth is the river... as if Riverlea is either a square or a rectangle.  I probably said it in a few of the posts I've written and linked to there.

I think I see 7 sides that are NOT on the river... but I am now kinda wondering if Rush Run Park is City of Columbus or City of Worthington and maybe the map is messed up on that southwest corner.  

MARCH 4, 2009 "Riverlea is surrounded on three sides by the City of Worthington... the west side is on the Olentangy River."

Decembe 21, 2009  -  "Riverlea is surrounded by Worthington on three sides and the Olentangy River on it's fourth."

Feb. 9, 2011 - "Riverlea is a separate village on the Olentangy River surrounded by Worthington on three sides... kinda sorta.  Riverlea is not quite rectangular. "
