“Great city park!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Washington Park re-opened after a massive renovation, including an underground parking structure, just about a year ago. All summer long the outdoor stage is busy with evening movies, jazz, rock and other events. Periodically, you'll find farmers' and flea markets set up in the park. The playground is imaginative and looks like it was built with safety in mind. Cincinnati's Music Hall forms a backdrop for concerts and ballets.
And, my dog says the dog park is wonderful!!! In the summer, a stream runs through it and the astro-turf makes for easy clean-up. Plenty of rocks are strategically placed for use - if you know what I mean!!! A great place to let your dog run while you sit on a bench an enjoy the air.

“Amazing renovation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

The park is fabulous for a great oasis in the inter-city. Very nice dog park, and a play area for children with a castle and climbing areas. Interactive water features (for the summer are great fun and beautiful. A wide variety of musical programs throughout the spring, summer and fall seasons. A great place for all ages! A revfitalized gem in Cincinnati!

“Totally renovated and renewed.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

A beaten down and neglected park that was a haven for the homeless and down and out alcoholics is now a garden showplace.

“A Renaisssance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

The Washinton Park has been recreated over the last two years from a drab unattractive park to an awesome full rectangular city block of glorious resurrection. There are fountains, reasonable underground parking, stages for live entertainment, and the ability to change as the needs present themselves. Last year part of the street became a sand surface for a soccer tournament. There have been performances by the Cincinnsti Opera, the Symphony, the Ballet, and the Pops all on the same night and attended by 5000 or more folks who were not crowded and had a beautiful summer evening looking at the entrance of Cincinnati's majestic Music Hall.Cincinnati is on the move!
