The oxbow at the ORWRP was constructed to resemble an area once connected to the Olentangy River. This large body of water allows for prime habitat for many waterfowl bird species. Oxbow lakes are areas disconnected from the river except for flooding events allowing for excellent nutrient and sediment filtration.
