Scarecrow Row

Scarecrow Row is a fun, FREE, fall art installation of scarecrows at Otto Armleder Park.

It’s the coolest, most family-friendly, under-the-radar fall event in Cincinnati (not to mention a fantastic way to get some fresh air and practice social distancing) and a must visit!

Scarecrow Crow a collaboration between Hamilton County Great Parks & Cincinnati Recreation Commission.

This is the event’s fourth year, and third year at Otto M. Armleder Park. (The first year the event was held along the Lunken Playfield bike path, which was really picturesque, but too long for families and not as handicap accessible.)

There are over 20 scarecrows stretching across two miles of trails.

As you enter Otto M. Armleder Park, you’ll come down the driveway and park in the lot by the playground. From there, you’ll walk through the seating area, past the play equipment, where you’ll be greeted by the  first of many scarecrows.

The scarecrows are designed by local individuals, businesses and organizations.

Don’t be fooled by their name: these autumn mascots are not at all scary. 

Each one has a different theme. Some are more classically “Halloween,” while others eschew the season’s themes in favor of the funny (and punny). 

The scarecrows are exquisitely designed, with lots of fun details.

Kids will enjoy looking at all everything!

Clocking in at just two miles long, this fall activity is perfect for hiking or biking with your family. 

Because the scarecrows are located all throughout the trails, you can make the hike as long or short as you’d like. And since it’s outside, Scarecrow Row is a perfect socially distant fall activity for families.

 Scarecrow Row is a fun, under-the-radar Halloween event that offers families a little something different.

Scarecrow Row is located at Otto M. Armleder Park, and the scarecrows will be on display from now until October 26. Find more details on the event’s website here.
