French Park

3012 Section Road Cincinnati, OH 45237

Reserve the French House for a private party and you and your guests can feel like you’ve stepped back decades in time. French House is the focal point of 275-acre French Park. French House was built in the early 1900’s and then remodeled several times. The two-story brick house offers many adjacent rooms and outdoor terraces, surrounded by gardens and meadows in the center of French Park for private functions. French Park itself has miles of hiking trails, creeks, meadows and wooded hillsides, a shelter and a distant view of Cincinnati. The park is in Amberley Village.

Kennedy Heights Park

6039 Kennedy Avenue Cincinnati, OH 45213

The original park land for Kennedy Heights Park was purchased in 1930 with additional small lots added throughout the years for a total of 12.484 acres. With its rolling hills and mature trees, the park provides a pleasant neighborhood retreat. There is a shelter house at the top of the hill, many picnic tables throughout the wooded slopes, play equipment and a soccer field. A beech grove exists in this small park and a wetland with boardwalks.

Daniel Drake Park

5800 Red Bank Road Cincinnati, OH 45213

This 66-acre park was named for Daniel Drake, who founded Cincinnati’s first medical college and who also happened to be a nature enthusiast. The park has a handsome shelter, which offers a beautiful view from its overlook, as well as playgrounds and a walking path. It’s tucked into the Kennedy Heights neighborhood.
