Concerts & Other Summer Fun At The Cincinnati Parks

May 19, 2017

The Cincinnati Parks are gearing up for a busy summer of concerts and events spread over their 5000 acres in the city. 

  Cincy Summer Streets is a celebration of our largest public space - our city streets. Cincinnati will close-down traffic on two major roads on Saturday, July 19 - one on the east side of town, one on the west - to create a car-free space for everyone to play, run, walk, bike, skate, dance, create art, connect with their neighbors, and support local businesses. The two events are free, fun, and all are invited. To give us a preview of the events is Margy Waller, serendipity director with Art on the Streets, and Melissa McVay, City of Cincinnati Department of Transportation & Engineering Senior City Planner, and city liaison for bike programs.

The Cincinnati Observatory, 'The Birthplace of American Astronomy' and home to the oldest professional telescope in the US, is always a wonderful destination for anyone, of any age, who is curious about science, astronomy and the world around them.

This summer, the observatory has several activities lined up to engage, entertain and enlighten those interested in the sun, the moon, Saturn - and other cosmic entities that make up our own solar system.
