Sense of community – that's what you'll find in Powell but that’s not all.

We embrace our humble roots and take pride in maintaining a vibrant downtown, safe neighborhoods and an active and engaged citizenry. Powell has paired a small-town, family-friendly atmosphere with all of the modern-day conveniences and amenities of a growing community.

Powell is a community that is protected by an accredited police department and home to the highly-rated Olentangy Local School District. The City offers more than 270 parks and recreation camps and programs, providing a place for every family to play, learn, create and imagine. On a warm day, residents can hop on a bike and ride along more than 13 miles of trails, ending up in historic downtown Powell or at one of the municipal parks. They can bond with their children over the toe-tapping music of a Lolli-Pops! Children’s Concert or put a blanket in their usual spot and watch the colorful fireworks display that concludes the annual Powell Festival.
