Great Parks of Hamilton County

It’'s the time of year most of us prefer to stay inside and stay warm. But it’'s a great time to bundle-up, head outdoors, and enjoy all that nature has to offer. And our area'’s many first-class parks and nature preserves are the perfect places to do just that. Here to talk about the many winter programs offered by our park systems are Kimberly Whitton, Marketing and Communication coordinator for Great Parks of Hamilton County, and  Jennifer Harten with the Cincinnati Parks Explore Nature program.

Mile markers coming to city trails

Oct 22, 2014

  The City of Cincinnati will install mile markers on four paved hiking-biking trails, so if you need assistance you can get it more quickly.  The Otto Armleder Park Trail and Connector Trail, the Lunken Airport Trail, and the Ohio River Trail will all have numbered markers posted every tenth of a mile, much like on Interstate highways.

  Greater Cincinnati has the good fortune to not only have a vibrant and growing arts, culture and entertainment scene, our region is also an amazing place to discover life in the great outdoors. And to help with that discovery, next Saturday and Sunday the 11th annual Great Outdoor Weekend takes place: 120 free outdoor events spanning the eight counties in and around Greater Cincinnati. Joining us for a preview of the many and varied events you can enjoy this weekend are Kimberly Whitton, communication coordinator for Great Parks! Hamilton County Park District; Amy Sauer, Program & Events manager with Green Umbrella; and Emily White, co-owner of Roads Rivers & Trails adventure outfitter.

Great Parks of Hamilton County recently received a generous grant to assist with the reforestation of Sharon Woods, but as Kimberly Whitton from Great Parks tells our Robyn Carey-Allgeyer, this is a volunteer-driven effort that is now in need of volunteers.
