The Commons

The Commons is a community gathering place in the heart of downtown Columbus. Building on the strong foundation of the original structure, The Commons opened in April 2011 as a 21st century model for public gatherings and use by the community. The new structure features an expanded indoor playground, complete with a Luckey climber, expanded Miller-Tangeman Lobby featuring Chaos, a Jean Tinguely sculpture created for the original Commons, the Nugent-Custer Performance Hall, The Patio and the Xenia Miller Conference Room (free for not-for-profit organizations to use).

For information about rentals of any of The Commons areas, contact The Commons at (812) 376-2681.
