Park
“Right at the foot of the Reobling Bridge there's a little something for everyone. The Carousel is absolutely beautiful and fun for adults and kids. In the summer be sure to take your swimsuit to run through the fountains, lots of green space along the river for picnics, walks, a playground, misting area and gorgeous views. Close to the Reds stadium, too. ”
