Outdoor Fun & Parks

Boone County Arboretum

This Free beautiful tree park is fasinating with a large playground and miles of paved trails weaved around the most unique trees you'll ever see. However, please mark in your day planner that even though it is a "Tree" park, there is not much shade. It is, however, an entire day of learning and reading tiny signs that is one of a kind compare to any other park. Read More »

Lake Isabella

Lake Isabella is a large quiet and peaceful lake to take the kids for a few hours of picnicing and fishing. And, when the kids are ready to make a little noise, there is lots of land to run and a cute playground where you'll find swings and monkey bars. Read More »

Cincinnati Nature Center

The Cincinnati Nature Center is like going back in time to 1898. There are acres of forests with natural mulched trails weaved around the historic Krippendorf home, another log cabin with period artifacts, tadpole & lili-pad frog ponds, daffodiles, and a beautiful indoor nature center. It is located east of Cincinnati, and the drive out there feels like a time capsal from big city to all natural times preserving the way it was... once upon a time. Read More »

Swaim Park

This is one of the most beautiful parks in Cincinnati. Swaim (although I'm not sure how to pronounce it's name) has two beautiful duck ponds with a fountain, big blooming trees in the spring, a paved walking or bike trail winding through the playground past the picnic tables over the tiny wooden bridge that stretches from one parking lot to the other parking lot which marks it's borders.

Bob Meyer Park

This is a great, safe, neighborhood public park next to the Rockwern Academy off Montgomery Road. It is big enough to tucker them out, but small enough to be able to actually have a seat on one of the two wooden benches and watch your kids play and play. Read More »

Bechtold Park

Yet another fun park to visit. There isn't much shade, but there are lots of things to do. There are several covered large picnic table areas, there are two large playgrounds (which we sometimes drive from one to the other), swings, basketball courts, and ... your child's imagination. Read More »

Dulle Park

Like a hide-away that not many people have discovered yet, this park is more than just a playground with covered picnic tables, it is also a natural playground with a small and "kid-friendly" creek for skipping stones. If the sun is out, and you're looking for a spot to park it in the shade... this is the peaceful park to go to. Read More »

Parky’s Farm

When the weather is just right... this is a wonderful and relaxing day out with the kids. Spring, Summer or Fall, it is 100 Acres of beautiful peace and it offers so many activities for the kids. Read More »
