It's Helsel Park. DO NOT use this park. Cops are all over the area. Also, beware of anyone on Craigslist asking to meet there, I have strong reasons to believe the cops are luring people there.

This is one of the cruisiest parks and one that gets busted on a regular basis. Use caution because plain clothes police do monitor this park.

Undercover cops are doing busts here, parking in unmarked cars and walking the trails. Be aware.

Columbus Police pigs are cracking down on cruising in all city parks, Heisel, Berliner, Big Walnut, just to name a few. Channel 10 News is working with police to 'Expose the Exposers', as their news reports are called. Be extremely careful in city parks as the police pigs know exactly how to cruise and how to trick you into exposing yourself. And they are using fat and ugly cops as well as the good-looking ones. I guess Columbus has its rape/robbery/murder rates down to a point that they can now waste taxpayer dollars on these park stings. Anyway, be very careful guys!

Warning! I saw on FOX News that there are some busts going on at this park. People have been complaining to police of the 'sexual activity' in the park and on the trails. There were six guys arrested at this place on the 14th and three arrested on the 16th.

A gentleman and I were arrested here today. There were two undercover police officers, one of them was fat and nasty -- had the role of a troll down to a science! I was caught dick-handed. The other officer was very polite and upfront about everything. Make no mistake, the police are professionals and they know what they are doing. He said they are in all of the parks, because they have all gotten way out of hand.

This place is great if you go out on the trails but beware. I got my wallet stolen while being sucked.


Posted Apr 19 2006:
I go there all the time and never get lucky. I just want to feed someone. There are a lot of people just sitting there. I even jackoff sometimes hoping a hungry mouth will come to help me out. I show people too.

A friend of a friend was busted by an undercover cop at this park a few days ago.


Posted Sep 21 2005:
Not much action here. It tends to be snobby pretty boys.


Posted Apr 25 2004:
Heads Up!
Use care when cruising here. Cops have busted people in their cars and on the trails.

Heilsel Park has become the darling of Columbus vice officers looking for an easy bust. The news crews love coming to the park where they video cruisers and report on their activities. If you go, used extreme caution.


Posted Apr 10 2002:

Hate to be the one with all the bad news men, but this place is being patroled on a regular basis by Columbus Police in plain clothes.


Posted Jan 29 2002:
I found this park to be very cruisy. Saw a blowjob going on back on the trails.


Posted Jul 17 2001:

Undercover cops here. The police do not like this duty and are particularly mean about this work. If you see a young guy enticing you on but showing nothing really, watch out! One guy told me that he got busted after a cop followed him all over those well worn paths until he through caution to the wind and showed his cock. BUSTED!


Posted Sep 10 2000:
Active all hours of the day. The trails are almost too
well groomed which reduces the amount of
warning you have if someone is approaching. All in
all, it is an excellent place for all types of cock, but
just stay aware of your surroundings.
