  • I grew up in Cincinnati and have not been back in awhile, and all I can say is 'WOW!' This park is amazing and has completely transformed what once was a dingy, dirty waterfront area. Everything is easily accessible, clean, fun, safe and extremely beautiful. From bike paths to walkways to playgrounds, water features, flowers and grassy areas, this is definitely a wonderfully family-friendly area to take a stroll along the river, play and relax. We found easy parking next to the new carousel, and walked down to the park from there. Make sure you visit this new gem if you are visiting Cincinnati, or have lived there all your life. We will be back!
  • The view is AMAZING! The kids really love the water park and, unlike other parts of Cincinnati that I've been to, the people were nice and polite. Everyone seemed to be in such a peaceful state. An extremely pleasant experience that I hope to relive many times over. And.....it is totally free!
  • Awesome park. Great views. Close to riverfront restaurants. Kids will love the water areas and playgrounds. Adults will like the swings and walking paths. Plenty for all ages.
  • Fun for all ages! The park has pools & fountains to play in. The piano was great! There are lots of things to climb on. The Roebling bridge is right there so you can get some great photos. I will definitely come back!
  • Very Nice Place. Must visit place in Downtown Cincinnati. Plenty of fun activities for kids in summer. Must try those swing facing the Ohio River. Parking is street side and also across the street garage parking. You can actually walk on bridge. Segway tour can be fun as well. Awesome view and very calming.
