“I LOVE this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Washington Park is like a breath of fresh air for Cincinnati's downtown. The city took a janky, old space that was full of crime and blight, and turned it into the place to be for anyone and everyone. There is always huge diversity in the crowd there, and everyone is having a great time. The kids love to splash in the fountains and waterfall steps. The playground is really natural-minded and it's fenced in, which is always a plus when you are trying to keep your eyes on multiple children and would rather them not wander off into the street. There are tons of amazing activities happening here all the time now, like City Flea, and concerts, and much more. At this point I would say don't visit Cincinnati's downtown without stopping by WP. Also there are a load of great restaurants surrounding the area!

“Dancing Fountains!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

Washington Park is a beautiful "front lawn" for the Cincinnati Music Hall. Dog park, children's play ground and dancing fountains provide something for everyone. Parking garage is conveniently UNDER the park.

“A Beautiful Urban Park to be Proud of and not to be missed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Washington Park is gorgeous and it reminded us of Parks in Paris and NYC. It's clean, and beautifully designed and it's fun to just stroll but it's hard not to interact with all the water fountains. or visit the dogs in the dog park. The children's section is awesome and how fun is that for kids. This is something you don't want to miss
