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!
