  • Breath taking gardens, clean, hills - this is a park to be a regular at for walks with family or friends. There's a playground with long park benches with a layout great for balancing free play with children and being just near enough to watch. The paths are concrete side walks with lush butterfly gardens and clean grass. I love it and this is a gem in Cincinnati!
  • Ault Park is an absolute jewel of Cincinnati. Every time my wife and I go, she looks at me and says, "I can't believe we have this beautiful park here in our city." It's beautiful. The landscaping is impeccable. It gives you the European garden/park feel. There's plenty of room to run, play, sun bathe, picnic, read a book, bike, hike, site see, smell the flowers, play a guitar, fly a kite, dip your toes in a waterfall fountain, read plaques, look at statues, bring your stroller, have a catch, play hide and go seek, climb some monkey bars, enjoy beauty. It's beautiful. It's a great place for families. For singles. For couples. For old people. And for squirrels. I think you'll like it too.
  • GREAT clean park!!! Lots of family memories here, grilling, playing etc... I LOVE the trees & gardens! They have an over look that's just breathtaking!!! Peaceful & RELAXING!!!
  • My favorite Cincinnati Park! The grounds are always perfectly maintained. There is a beautiful structure right in the middle that is used for all sorts of events, especially spring and summer weddings. There is a nice garden right below it. My favorite part are the hiking trails. They are not challenging but they are typically well maintained and long enough for a decent workout.
  • beautiful landscaping! I love pushing my toddler up and down hills!! Great workout
