I'm Gonna Let You Finish Mr. Clemens... but Eden Park

This will be an ongoing series... to see the first post click here


Welcome to Eden Park- a nearly 200 acre park located in the heart of Cincinnati (and about 1 mile from Christ Hospital). Not only is it home to a beautiful view (see below) but also running trails, museums and theater spaces.

A perennial favorite is the the Krohn Conservatory. The current building was completed in 1933 and contains over 3,500 different species. But it really comes alive in the winter with Cincinnati Choo Choo when miles of train tracks and a miniature Cincinnati are set up around the plants.

We also LOVE the Cincinnati Art Museum, which is great to visit when you are in town for your interview. Not only in admission free but they have an excellent collection with rotating special exhibits and events. Currently the Art After Dark program which occurs the last Friday of the month is a great way to get your culture on.
