Enjoy free entry at one of Hamilton County's 21 Great Parks

The Great Parks of Hamilton County is celebrating their 92nd birthday with free entry to all on Sunday, July 17, dawn to dusk.

With over 17,700 acres to explore, the 21 parks and preserves in Hamilton County are treasures to all Cincinnatians. The Great Parks opened its first park in 1932, affectionately known today as Sharon Woods.


Sharon Woods

As the oldest park within Great Parks, Sharon Woods has a rich history of outdoor recreation with hiking, golfing, fishing and boating. At the harbor, enjoy snacks and treats while children play in the water features and playground. Rent a paddleboat with the kids to explore the 35 acre Sharon Lake.

Winton Woods

Home to one of our favorite Cincinnati campgrounds, Winton Woods offers camping, fishing, boat rentals, horseback riding, a newly renovated splash ground and Parky’s Farm. At the 100 acre educational farm, kids can play on the indoor and outdoor playgrounds, pet animals, ride a pony and explore the many gardens around the farm.

Miami Whitewater Forest

The largest Great Park, Miami Whitewater, offers stand-up paddleboarding, camping, hiking, golf and an impressive gift shop. Children can check out the indoor nature center where aquatic animals and nature displays peak curiosity.
