Whetstone's a nice place and right behind a library, so in theory you could get some books and head back to the nice quiet grassy areas available. I've never done it though. Actually, of most of the Columbus parks I've been to, this one is probably the most action packed. Supposedly archery goes on there, but mostly there are a lot of fitness buffs, runners, bikers, tennis-players, and softball teams. People bring dogs, and there is a creek/ravine area that is fun to splash around in, especially with your dog. And of course, Whetstone is the Park of Roses, and has a festival, and if you go to see the flowers you'll usually stumble across a group of people rehearsing a wedding in the gazebo.
