From community parks to the vast riverbank, Cincinnati's green spaces are found in abundance and sprinkled throughout the city. The variety of activities available is ideal for all walks of life, whether it be horseback riding over Mt. Airy Forest's bridle trails or savoring the fresh scents while hiking through Sharon Woods, taking in the hilltop views at Alms Park or simply strolling along the Ohio River at Sawyer Point. With over 13 percent of the city's land area devoted to parks, and over 16,000 acres just in Hamilton County, Cincinnati gives outdoor enthusiasts plenty to smile about.
