A 10-acre stormwater retention field owned by the Columbus Department of Utilities — but within the city of Reynoldsburg’s boundaries — will become a park for at least a decade, under a deal struck between the two cities.

Columbus CIty Council has approved contributing up to $2 million to make improvements, and Reynoldsburg will operate and maintain the new park for the next 10 years. The property has about 800 feet of frontage onto Brice Road, south of East Main Street and east of I-270.
