There are many facets of this place... spaces to picnic, an overlook of the valley and Lunken airport below, trees, flowers, gardens maintained by individuals who claim their own spaces. It's BIG and a Cincinnati gem.

Love this park. Sits on top of a hill overlooking the valley. The main building has such cool architecture. Excellent place to take photos. Lots of walking trails and large green grass areas for playing.

This park features over 200 acres of views, gardens, and trails. With its pavilion and overlook of the Ohio Valley, this park is a must for the Cincinnati visitor. There are plenty of weddings at this park, and it's no wonder why. Highly recommend!
