From the time it was opened to the public in the latter half of the 1800's up to today Eden Park has provided a pleasant setting for the people of Cincinnati to enjoy some time away from it all. Given its age the Park is home to a number of significant historical structures. Some of the attractions at the Park should be on the list of places to visit for anyone from out of town.
Things to Do
- There really is a lot to see and do in the Park. The Spring House Gazebo, built in 1904 is the oldest extant construction in a Cincinnati park and is a minor icon of the city.
- The Krohn Conservatory is a large system of greenhouses and gardens which houses all kinds of plant varieties and is open to the public throughout the year.
- The Cincinnati Art Museum is located within the confines of the Park and if you visit at the right time you could catch a great show at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park or at the Seasongood Pavilion.
- Of course you can enjoy this park without visiting its many attractions too. Simply bring along a lunch, set up at one of the picnic tables and let your kids loose in one of the playgrounds.
Eden Park Insider Tips
- Be sure to bring a camera when you visit the park. There are quite a few good vantage points in the park overlooking the Ohio River and the state of Kentucky beyond it. You can get some great snaps on a clear day!
- The Park can get a little sketchy at night so it is probably better to visit during the day.
