There are several different parks on the Cincinnati riverside - Just start around Paul Brown stadium and keep walking East as far as you can. The parks are different and just lovely on a hot day. Great tree Canopy keeps one nice and cool. Go across into KY and walk on Riverside Drive to the end and then go across... More

It is not as long as we expected thus an easy stroll end to end, The day we were there, several hundred feet of the walk were blocked off for a Hillary Clinton event. Several adult size swing sets are to be found at the top of a knoll near the pedestrian bridge. There are high end restaurants and pubs... More

I walk this park almost everyday and enjoy the changing of the seasons and awesome flower beds. The park staff do a great job maintaining and cleaning the park. As a dog walker I appreciate the opportunity to walk my dog here, the park provides poop bags always within easy access. If you walk your dog here too, pick up... More

Some free parking available on the street. We thought this would be a good place to walk our dog and see a little city as we passed through. It was a nice park but you really can't see much city. Nice gardens and such to look at but not a great in the way of views. Felt clean and safe... More

My family and I visited this park while spending the day in downtown Cincinnati. We have a 15 year old and a 7 year old. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed all the park had to offer. There is something for every age. The coolest part were all the fountains and the way you were able to interact. The kids were learning and... More

What a wonderful way to see the river and enjoy a park at the same time. Lovely groomed gardens and fountains. Also enjoyed the adult swings.

We spent about 3 hours walking the gardens, walkways and bridges. Very pretty, with unique slides, swings, etc for the kids blended into the gardens along the paths. Definately worth the time if you want a scenic way to spend timte with that someone special.

Thought there was a River walk on the KY side, but it is listed on the map as proposed. Since there is nothing to do there, the need to speed up the creation.

Walking along this river walk is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon. The flowers and gardens are beautiful. The fountains are nice but I imagine after the sun goes down they would make some great pictures. Take some time to walk and enjoy this park...
