I couldn't be more impressed with what has been done with this park! I attend events any time I get the chance and go out of the way to stroll through given any opportunity. They offer free workout classes, free dance lessons, concerts and offer food and drink for purchase. It is refreshing to see so many different people smiling... More

We were here on a family event to enjoy the space and the sunny day. A great spot to enjoy people watching and sitting to rest when walking around the Over the Rhine area. It doesn't get any easier to park under the park and walk up to the park grounds. My only complaint was the loud sound system being... More

Wandered thru a local festival in the park with local bands playing. The flowers and plants were beautiful! So wonderful to see the park filled with kids playing in fountains and people relaxing.

About 6-7 yr....headed for Findley Market on a visit to Cincy..... we went past this and....the OTR area.... and it was SO sad. The whole area seemed neglected (at best) Historic buildings were real run down, pretty slummy. The Park, then, was a hangout for low lifes and winos. Renovating the park..... was a catalyst. It was done right. I... More

Not very large, but quite nice and well kept. The dog park is really neat and it has a little fountain in it which helps keeping the pooches refreshed! There is a lot for families too with a very nice water fountain area for the kids to play.

Very nice park - we had fun watching the dogs play in the dog park! If you have dogs, it would be a great place to visit. The dog area is large and has a "river". It appears Cincinnati has done a very good job on the park. We did have some issues walking back to our hotel with the... More

Right by music hall and OTR main strip. Nice to see people outside. Saturday early morning Yoga class had over 50 people. Today there was a free arts class for kids and free popcorn and sno cones. Inexpensive parking garage and nice restrooms. Craft beers and pop for sale on weekends. Often there are markets here. Findlay market nearby.

On a hot day, there is a lot going on in this park. There are kids and parents running though the water fountain cooling off and laughing as they play. There is large kids park that is also filled with children. On this Saturday evening there was a dance performing in a little clearing...the dancer performed on a giant tarp... More

There is something for everyone at Washington Park. There are fountains for kids to run through, bands, open areas for games, play areas, a dog park, food and local beer on tap. Parking is available under the park. We have been to Over the Rhine several times and almost always park there. It is busy and we always feel safe.... More
