The Whetstone Prairie Project started in 2004 and has continued to be a joint project between Columbus Recreation and Parks and Wild Ones Columbus Chapter. The 3.5-acre prairie is located at the south end of Whetstone Park and is identified by signs. In 2018, Columbus Recreation and Parks put into place a five-year management plan for the prairie. It was recently mowed to prevent invasives and woody plants from establishing, and was seeded with 35 native perennials.
