Historically bland but still a fun place to people watch.... Holidays are fun as there are ice rinks, etc... and Reds and Bengals games provide the added feature of a large TV screen. Overall a nice place to visit and feed the pigeons and homeless alike....

If your visiting the city you have to see it. Located in the center or the city it is hard to miss. Interesting fountain with an equally interesting history. Not something to have to visit on every trip to Cincinnati, but if you are here go see it.

The place as nothing interesting given the Fontaine it's not very nice.nevertheless you can find a good restaurant and you can do shopping at Macy's. Now don't try to work around the place when it's late if you're alone or a woman it is not really safe. I trust you have other nice places to go to in Cincinnati

I get enjoying watching my son enjoy the fountain and find other kids to run around the square with meeting new friends.

Love Fountain Square in the Spring and Summer and was surprised by its winter time fun. They have a small ice skating rink set up and it was great to sit and watch people skate and enjoy an abnormally warm winter weekend!

We stopped by around lunch and found a market. There were great eats to be had interspersed with a little shopping. A couple food trucks were on the square which was some nice variety. Enough sitting room for eating and relaxing next to the fountain.

Great family fun. Watching Santa, Rudolph and the Elf repel down the side of the building was amazing. My kids loved it!

There is a lot going on in the summer at Fountain Square. There is live music on several nights, tables set up to lounge and enjoy the activities, and a jumbotran TV set up for movies. Plus the nearby restaurants offers a nice variety to choose from.

What a nice park. Even in the winter it was teeming with people walking, running, relaxing and even skating on the rink. Great views and well kept and clean.

From our hotel room we could see this place. It had an ice skating ring and it was always packed in the evenings. Just a nice place to hang around.
