Come celebrate the newest City park
Washington Park is an important civic space in the heart of Cincinnati that has evolved over the last 150 years to accommodate the needs and aspirations of the community. The latest improvements came as a result of a unique partnership between the Cincinnati Park Board and the Cincinnati Center City Development Corporation (3CDC). Working together, the two organizations engaged in a community-based master planning process to create a new plan for the park in 2007. The vision which emerged not only preserved what is unique and special about the park, but also added new amenities to support the revitalization of the neighborhood.
Be one of the first to experience Washington Park as the entire community is invited to the Ribbon Cutting event on Friday, July 6 at 10 a.m. Mayor Mark Mallory and Parks Director Willie Carden will be joined by summer campers from Emanuel Center and Peaslee Center, circus performers from My Nose Turns Red, Street Pops vendors with free popsicles, Taste of Belgium with free waffles and ice tea, musical entertainment, and more! What’s more, there will be free parking in Washington Park Garage from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
