This is a great link of several different urban riverfront parks. You can watch the history of Cincinnati park design as you walk along the river. Smale Park is the newest, with lots of young plants, activities for kids and even a row of porch swings for enjoying the view of the river. Sawyer Point is a fairly old park with mature trees and well loved green spaces. The Theodore Berry International Friendship Park has a diverse selection of plants and structures and is interesting to walk through.
