They just completed a $30 Million renovation and update of the facility.It’s been many years since I’ve been to welcome stadium. Have they cleaned it up at all? It was kind of a dump last time I was there.
Last I knew, there was a discus sector in that park northwest of the parking lot. There was a tree hanging over the sector which would occasionally get hit by a legal throw. Google Earth images are showing a lot of dirt being moved in that park in July of 2022, so it's hard to say what the status of that sector is.Negatives- no discus ring anywhere on site- that will be interesting for those kids. No shade anywhere. No trees. Concrete jungle.
That's the way us older farts felt about competing in Ohio Stadium. THE stadium of Jesse Owens. THE stadium of Charles "Chic" Harley, the man who "built Ohio Stadium". Chic Harley, legendary OSU & Columbus North football/track star who competed and placed in the state meet back on the old Ohio Field before Ohio Stadium was ever a thought.Glad it’s just a 1 yr. thing, but unfortunately the seniors missed competing at JO their freshman year and they will miss that opportunity their senior year too. JO is just special and different than any other venue
