A Historical Perspective

The Final Stretch > Groundbreaking > Grand Opening

Beulah Park is an essential part of Grove City’s history, an iconic site with renown stretching well beyond the city limits. With nearly a century of community connection, the month of May is a good time for reflection.

“We know that this 213-acres is going to turn into something that is going to have another 100 years, which is going to be very, very positive for our community. And we are all going to be proud of what is to come.”

– Grove City Mayor Richard L. “Ike” Stage (May 2014)

Beulah Park was Ohio’s first thoroughbred racetrack and premier event center, offering live horse racing from October through to early May. From 1923-2014, it stood as a historic landmark for Columbus, Grove City and the state of Ohio. The final day live racing took place on May 3, 2014

And here for a video by The Columbus Dispatch of the last day of racing.

On May 3, 2019 developer Falco, Smith and Kelley broke ground on what we know Beulah Park as today, central Ohio’s largest walkable residential community. This date marked the beginning of this well-remembered site’s transition to a major mixed-use community. An unique opportunity to add 220 master-planned acres to this growing community and connecting Grove City’s Historic Town Center with surrounding residential area.

For a look back, The Columbus Dispatch covered the story here and here.

May 3, 2021

May 3, 2021 marked a major milestone in the redevelopment of Beulah Park Living. Beulah Place, luxury apartment and townhome living, hosted a Grand Opening and Ribbon Cutting ceremony. The front door of Beulah Park from the historic Town Center, Beulah Place adds to the diverse housing which will allow for a diverse range of people. This truly defines this development as a community.

Beulah Place joins The Courtyards at Beulah Park and The Grove at Beulah Park in already welcoming residents home to Beulah Park. Residents of The Paddock and Danbury Grove City are expected by Fall 2021.
