Southern Orchards is an established neighborhood on the near south side of Columbus, Ohio. It is located immediately southeast of downtown and is the 23rd most walkable neighborhood in Columbus with 3,538 residents.[1] The neighborhood is the target of revitalization and beautification largely due to its anchor institution Nationwide Children's Hospital[2] and a renewed interest in urban living in the city's core. Since 2008, more than 90 properties have been improved through the hospital’s Healthy Homes program and continued revitalization is occurring along the major streets of Livingston and Parsons Avenues as the city moves to reconnect downtown to its surrounding neighborhoods.[3]
