We are incredibly lucky to have all of the green space and playgrounds we have in this city!
There are so many that we had to group them into sections.
This “SOUTH” guide has the following areas of town:

Downtown, South Cincinnati, Newport, Covington, Ft. Thomas, Erlanger, Edgewood, Ft. Mitchell, Ft. Wright, & Florence
