Cincinnati’s Oldest Park Is Still One Of The Most Beautiful Spots In The City

Cincinnati residents are lucky to have so many parks that are perfect for relaxation and escape from everyday life. In the hustle and bustle of downtown, one small area has stood the test of time as Cincinnati’s oldest park and continues to be a welcoming spot in the city. Piatt Park on Garfield Place is a charming two-block respite that is known for its history, beautiful surroundings, and unique urban location.
