Big Bonelick State Park

Big Bonelick State Park

Recreated grasslands, wetlands and wooded savannas lie along the Discovery trail leading to the paved Bonelick Creek Trail where you'll literally see a herd of real Buffalo. This park blooms all through the months of Spring and Summer, and changes into a world of new colors in the Fall. When we want to go for "a walk in the park", we enjoy the great outdoors at this state park. The trails provide lots of shade and lots of level walking ground great for all ages. Read More »

Eden Park

Eden Park

Eden Park is one of the most beautiful "vistas" or views of Cincinnati. It is magestic to sit on the wall and look down at the Ohio River, the Big Mac bridge, Newport, and Kentucky. It feels like a view taken from some European painting. Read More »

Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden

The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden is literally one of the top zoos in the nation. To this day, I do not think that my kids have seen the entire zoo. It is huge, beautiful, and always alive with interactive shows, feeding stations, and new exhibits. Read More »

Sharon Woods

Sharon Woods is a huge Hamilton County park which could not possibly be enjoyed and admired in just one day. For outdoor fun, there is the harbor with the extensive modern playground, mini-water world with fountain sprays, rental paddle boats and canoes, and a covered pavillion for picnicing. For indoor fun, there is the "Treehouse" or Adventure Station in the Sharon Center, as well as educational nature displays and the tunnel fish tank. The Heritage Village is also on the premises of Sharon Woods. Read More »

Stephan Field

Stephan Field is a wonderful, shady, wooden play land with lots of swings, a variety of slides including the most fun tiny rolling pipe slide, tire swing, and hanging hand rings. I have seen kids of all ages here with big smiles and hours full of imagination. Read More »

Sellman Park

There are so few parks today surrounded by trees, but Sellman is not one of them. It is nestled within a wooded forest behind the Madeira Middle School, and it is an easy and shaded park to go to with the kids. Read More »

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 »

Coney Island

Coney Island's website says, "Coney Island is unique as it not only was the name of the New York resort that was the center of the amusement park universe in the early part of the century, but also the name of the famed amusement park in Cincinnati, OH, which is regarded by many as one of the best operated amusement parks in history." Yes, it's a big, fun, and unforgettable amusement park where you can enjoy a day in their Sunlite pool (the world’s largest recirculating swimming pool), ride over 20 classic family and kiddie rides, or enjoy live music.

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.
