“Unprecedented views of beautiful Cincinnati”
A city park in the neighborhood of Clifton Heights in Cincinnati, Ohio on Ohio Avenue. The park consists of 15 acres (61,000 m2), part of which is leased to the city by the University of Cincinnati. The park has a baseball field, shelter, picnic areas, playgrounds and restrooms. The park can be seen in the video It's Not My Time by 3 Doors Down when they are standing on the spiderweb stage high above Downtown Cincinnati. An example of organic architecture, the park's pavilion was designed by architect R. Carl Freund in 1955 to serve as an outdoor dancing venue. It features a cantilever roof, bandstand and three pergolas that form the pavilion's signature concrete canopy. Located on the former site of the Bellevue House and incline, part of Cincinnati's historic streetcar system, the pavilion leads to the Daniel J. Ransohoff Overlook of Cincinnati.
One of my favorite parks in Cincinnati. If you're feeling adventurous, walk all of Ohio Street, as the closer you get to the park, the more ornate and interesting the houses become. And seriously, the view is awesome.
If you're willing to go off the beaten path you can find a favorite spot of mine that gives you probably the best view of Union Terminal you'll find in the city. It's not too hard to find and if you are a keen observer of people and it's a nice day chances are you'll see some people heading that way.
Amazing view of the city. The houses in the area are gorgeous, they have some cool concrete structures you can climb on (I'm not advocating breaking the law here), and a sweet little trail that goes to a great overlook. This is definitely a hidden gem in Cincy, and tends to be more of a college crowd thanks to UC being next door.
Pro tip- Come hang out here during the Fourth of July to enjoy the fireworks throughout the city!
