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 »

McDonald Commons Park

McDonald Commons Park

McDonald Commons Park has the best and longest monkey bars! There are lots of things to climb and crawl through in both playgrounds that are next to each other by the covered picnic tables, and there is lots and lots of sun. All the trees are actually behind the softball fields and that is where you find the beautiful trails, creek, and wooden bridge. This is a wonderful Madeira neighborhood park. 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 »

Blue Ash Nature Park

Shady... with five parks in one... perfect for any summer day. There are swings and clean bathrooms, a huge covered picnic table area, and even trails. Another great park in Cincinnati that offers lots to do for the short attention span kids like mine. 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 »

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 »
