Pretty impressive to have a city named after Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus, a hero of the Roman Republic in the fifth century B.C. This statue is in an easy to view location, right on the river.

Used to enjoy the river-side park often with my children but it is just run down in many parts and needs a good update throughout the length of the waterfront. Basics of cleanliness and healthly plants would go far. New and different activities would make...More

It is nice to see part of the history of Cincinnati. There are a number of things to see down there and nearby. As another reviewer mentioned the people you see there are friendly and it has always felt safe.

There is always interesting vendors and booths around this state of our city's namesake and the tunnels during the many festivals and events in Sawyer Point.
