“Wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We attended the Grand Opening of Washington Park last year and were blown away with what has been done with this area. It sure helps with parking in the OtR Gateway district and the Music Hall, and the park itself provides a wonderful location for events. Great job Cincinnati!

“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.
