Washington Park Grand Opening

A couple weeks ago, I talked about Washington Park and how I couldn’t wait for it to officially open! Well, it officially unveils tomorrow, July 6, and I got to take an official sneak peek press tour on Tuesday! I was so impressed! There’s a bandstand (complete with a concert lineup), dog park, play ground, interactive water feature (a 7,000-square-foot focal point, consisting of 130 pop jets that can be synchronized to music and lights!), massive civic lawn and a new 450-space parking lot. The renovation expanded the park from six acres to eight, occupying two full city blocks between 12th and 14th streets! Come see it for yourself at the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Grand Opening of Washington Park July 6, at 10am! Cincinnati Mayor Mark Mallory and Parks Director Willie Carden will be joined by some popular guests! There will be Circus Performers, Free Popsicles from Street Pops, Free Waffles & Tea from Taste of Belgium, a performance by Japanese Childrens Choir, Explore Nature staff with Dig for Fossils and more!
