We were able to take the Trolley into Washington Park and really enjoy the weather from the day. There were all walks of life and a diverse crowd which made the atmosphere feel wonderful. Kids were playing, teenagers hanging out, older couples strolling and all ages in-between. Definitely a great park to sit on one of the many benches and... More

I hadn't't been to this park in years. It is certainly worth a visit. On the CB streetcar line. the parking is a little difficult with the construction at Music Hall (across the street). Has underground parking.

This is another jewel in Cincinnati's increasing array of great places to visit and hang out. Across from Music Hall it offers a lot of diversity for adults and kids. I am so glad this park was improved.

Whilst wandering round Cincinnati I wandered through Washington Park, my experience is from a weekday in Autumn and unlikely to compare to evening and weekends through Summer. But from what I saw as I passed by; was a pretty little park, just outside the centre of Cincinnati but within the Historic Over-the-Rhein District, I can easily see it being quite... More

This park was worn out, but with the resurgence of Over-the -Rhine, the city did a major renovation. With established trees, a sprayground, a popular play field, and convenient parking, it has become a great downtown park to visit. Across from the iconic Music Hall, it is also convenient to many restaurants.

I was skeptical when they updated this quaint little park and turned it into a mega-park. But they quickly won me over. The gazebo is still there. The fountains are cool. I love the dog park. I haven't had a chance to take my dog there yet, but I like to wave to all the doggies when I pass by.... More

My most recent visit to Washington Park was to attend a political rally. (I was so relieved to find decent bathrooms and water fountains at both ends!) Although there is a parking lot underground, I easily found parking on a nearby street. But when Washington Park is really at its best is during the Summer when water fountains spray up... More

From movie nights, rec league kickball and city fleas, Washington Park plays host to just about anything! The park is beautiful with plenty of walking paths and places to sit down. Worth a visit on a date night or getting a group together to go to the summer Beer Fest. Never a dull moment! Parking garage is available underneath the... More

The park is nice and there are a lot of events held here with live music, etc. This park has a lot of history that you would learn about on any Cincinnati tour.

I decided to go to Washington Park when they have JAzz in the Park. It was wonderful. Now that it has been remodeled it is a very nice park. Before the remodel I would not go to Washington Park. Now I like going there for the events they have.
