Rated the safest city in Ohio, but also rated in the top 10th percentile in the country.
What’s a Rich Text element?
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Just the year before, Dublin was rated among the top 100 safest cities in America, but now it’s also the safest city in Ohio! This Columbus suburb has been recognized by SafeHome, Neighborhood Scout, and SafeWise as one of the safest cities in Ohio and in the country. Dublin’s status as Ohio’s safest city is credited to hard work and vigilance of the police department, but also that of the residents--and you could be a part of that!
If you’re considering this suburb as a possible settling place, here are a few of the things this safe city can offer you:
- Public Schools
- Outdoor Activities
Dublin has been praised for its excellent public schools and family friendly neighborhood. More of the residents own their homes rather than rent because a large fraction of the residents is families that have settled there with their children. The cost of living is slightly higher in comparison to other Columbus suburbs, but it’s well worth it for the public schools!
The schools offer a generally diverse curriculum with a less tense environment than inner city schools, and the high schools offer advanced placement classes that allow students a slight edge when applying to colleges.
Aside from the metro parks in the Columbus area, Dublin also has its own natural parks for its residents to enjoy. The outdoor facilities and exercise programs available in the area such make Dublin fitness-friendly. To name just a few:
Ballantrae Community Park
Ballantrae Park offers multiple paths for biking and walking as well as a municipal pool and a separate competitive pool for those seeking to strictly exercise. The park also has waterfall display and public lake for the community to enjoy. However, what makes it iconic is the Dancing Hares (nicknamed the Giant Dancing Rabbits), an art display of three rabbits in courtship. At the display’s feet is a water fountain, where children often stamp their feet in the warmer months.
Considered Dublin’s “Central Park,” Coffman has an art gallery, festival grounds, ice-skating rink, City Hall, the Dublin Community Recreation Center, and the Dublin Historical Society all in one place. It’s a 105-acre park, so it has plenty of ground for residents to explore or even do something as simple as their daily run. For those who need a fitness incentive, the Dublin Community Recreation Center offers the Fit52 program, which allows you to rack up points for free prizes when working out and attending fitness classes.
Just because Dublin is a suburb doesn’t mean it’s suddenly boring at nighttime. If you feel like going out with your friends after work or late on a weekend night, Dublin has a selection of late-night pubs and bars to enjoy. The Pint Room is one of the most popular pubs, known for their burgers and insanely long draft beer list. Their cheese curds are a crowd favorite as well!
Naturally, cities house many companies and therefore house a lot of jobs, and therefore need people to fill those jobs. However, it’s unnecessary to actually live in the heart of Columbus--some people want to, but Dublin is a close commute! So, you can save some money and get a break from the rush and noise of the city after work. Also, the Central Ohio Transit Authority (COTA) offers an alternative for driving into Columbus and is readily available in Dublin’s neighborhood.
Even with the active law enforcement and continuously dropping crime rate, Dublin can offer you options and activities available that make the city not only safe but also fun!
