Borror believes in the importance of balancing work, life and play, and in the warmer months that means spending plenty of time outdoors. It‘s easy to enjoy outdoor living all summer long with resort-style pools, sundecks, grilling areas and water sports. Pools at Borror properties open on May 1 and remain open through Oct. 1—an extended swimming season compared to the industry standard of Memorial Day to Labor Day.
“All summer long, we host pool parties, picnics, and giveaways to encourage our residents to get out and meet their neighbors,” says Dani Sugarman, Vice President of Apartment Operations. “Our parties have DJs playing music, great food, dancing and karaoke. Everyone loves the vibe.”
Near Upper Arlington, Runaway Bay offers a resort-style swimming pool and tennis court as well as access to a 26-acre fresh water lake—an outdoorsy amenity virtually unheard of in Central Ohio. The property offers kayak, canoe and boat storage along with private beach and boat dock access. Plus, a convenient BBQ and picnic area allow for outdoor entertaining all summer long.
On the north side, Worthington Meadows is home to a resort-style swimming pool with poolside sundeck, playground and dog park. Karric Place of Dublin, Silvertree at Little Turtle, and Springburne at Polaris offer sparkling pools with sundecks and plenty of green space. Downtown, 303 provides a rooftop sundeck with amazing skyline views. And in the Short North, The Jerome offers an outdoor deck area perfect for entertaining with two gas grills and a stone fireplace.
Additionally, those Downtown and Short North properties are located in close proximity to popular city parks with convenient access to the city’s best outdoor festivals, such as Columbus Arts Festival, June 8-10 on the downtown riverfront; Jazz and Rib Festival, July 20-22 on the Scioto Mile; and ComFest, June 22-24 in Goodale Park. Plenty of restaurants and bars with outdoor patios are within easy walking distance.
