Neighborhood Highlight: Schiller Park
Distance From The Barrett: 2 blocks
Down the street on Deshler Avenue sits Schiller Park, a favorite spot for residents of Merion and German Villages.
Throughout the year, you can find neighbors strolling through the park with one another and often accompanied by a four-legged friend. The park offers tree lined paths, a recreation center, basketball and tennis courts, and plenty of areas for picnicking.
During the summer months, Schiller Park hosts The Actors Theatre of Columbus' Summer Park Series. This group often performs some of Shakespeare's best work along with other notable playwrights. A picnic blanket acts as your ticket to Schiller's open-air amphitheater.
Around the holidays, paper luminaries line Schiller Park and guide you to businesses and restaurants that are open late for German Village's annual, “Village Lights”. You'll feel like you've gone back in time as the park and neighborhood are transformed with carolers and the spirit of the holidays.
Schiller Park connects Merion and German Village and is a fantastic amenity to both neighborhoods. When you live at The Barrett you'll be steps away from one of the best parks in the city.

If you've been by The Barrett lately you've noticed a lot has been happening. Foundations are poured, trenches were dug, and we've gone vertical with framing in both the school building and our three-story townhomes.
The most visible sign of improvement has been the initial framing of our first townhome building on Thurman Avenue. The framing for this building should take a few more weeks and then we will begin work on the remaining townhome buildings.
The townhomes will offer one and two-bedroom floorplans with attached garages, and designer finishes. They will have access to the same amenities and programs as residents living in the school building, but will enjoy a brand new apartment built from the ground up.
We hope to have our first townhomes ready for move-in late summer/early fall. If you're interested in reserving your new townhome shoot us an email and we'll get you more information.
