These places are all artsy places. Why would you recommend it for a truck driving, beer drinking kind of guy? This guy would stick out like a sore thumb in those areas.

The reason I suggested those areas is because he said he wanted Urban, and near parks. Goodale Park...and that is definately an Urban area.

You'll be close enough to the city action (Short North, German Village, Downtown) without paying a lot of $$$.
I was going to suggest Westgate as well. I was born and raised there, moved away for 12 years, and came back. Never mind all the bad press about the west side, Westgate is the nice little doughnut hole.

Personally from your description, I wouldn't say German Village, Victorian Village, or the Short North would be your type of area. Those places are the Urban core of Columbus, and even though they are great areas near downtown they are also diverse. When I picture your description, I don't picture those areas. I think Hilliard, Grove City, or Reynoldsburg/Pickerington would be your kind of place. that's just my $.02

I agree with this poster and the other that suggested Westgate. Probably has some of the elements you're looking for and it is urban, rather than suburban. Westgate was recently mentioned as one of the best neighborhoods in the Columbus area by a local magazine. It is affordable and unpretentious.
