They had the holiday lights on and the ice-skating rink set up while I was there (mid-November.) What a neat park!

We went to the Macy's Light Up the Square event this past weekend and also enjoyed the Chriskindl Markt! There was ice skating, fireworks, horse-drawn carriages, food, beer, and music. Santa even made a quick appearance just before the tree was lit! We love Fountain Square because there is always something going on and it is a great central location... More

There are a number of restaurants and shops. You can also take a carriage ride and ice skate. We were there for the Christmas tree lighting. It's a nice family outing.

Being at fountain square takes you back in time. It's a beautiful area, kept up with past memories and current events. There's always a lot to see and do. It's a great place to hang with family or friends. Winter is beautiful here. Be sure to ice skate and take in the city!

This is a nice place to hang out. We will be downtown to eat or see a game and we seem to always head to Fountain Square.

There is always something going on on Fountain Square but the holiday season is especially delightful. The ice skating ring is always fun and with the addition of the warm up station, it makes it easy to stay out longer. Local vendors occasionally set up shop giving you the opportunity to purchase truly unique merchandise.

Everyone knows where to go when you say Fountain Square in Cincinnati, Ohio. It is an easy drive by, but parking may be a little trickier. You'll need to find a metered spot on the street or choose one of the public parking garages nearby with signs to show the way. Fountain Square has megatron screen for viewing sporting events...

I had a good time with my mother, there was a party on the Square. There was Salsa dancing and the eatery was good also. My mother and I had a great experience and I would do this again

After reading some of the reviews, we decided to swing by here on a recent visit since it was close to our hotel. It was crowded and loud. I would suggest checking to see what is going on their before cruising to Fountain Square. It might be a place to chill or it might be a rock concert.

Thank TN-Frank
