Devou Park

It’s day 88 of 365 Things to do in Cincinnati and today we are visiting Devou Park.  Devou Park is right across the river from downtown and provides some of the most gorgeous views of our Queen City!

For the picture above, I stood slightly up the hill so that you can see the gorgeous seating area they have there at the edge of the hill.  We are looking north at the Cincinnati skyline.

Devou Park has the most amazing vantage points to get some great shot of the city’s skyline.  Above you’ll see Cincinnati’s newest addition, the Great American Tower.  I have been so surprised to see that building everywhere I go.  The planning that went into the physical location of that building was spot on!  It is visible from just about every place where you can get a view of the city skyline.

Turning around (my back is now towards the Ohio River), you’ll see the Drees Pavilion.  It’s a gorgeous building overlooking the Cincinnati skyline.  To the left you’ll see their gazebo.

And here’s a partial look at the patio on the back of the Drees Pavilion.  A 10,000 square foot indoor space, this would be a fantastic place to hold a wedding reception.  Here’s a shot of the view from the patio…

Wouldn’t that be gorgeous at night?  The grounds are well kept and the building itself is relatively new (2003) and gorgeous.

Devou Park also has hiking trails, a golf course, covered pavilions and playground areas.

While you’re there you can also stop in at the Behringer-Crawford Museum.  They also host outdoor concerts.

So put the camera in its bag and pack a lunch.  Head down to Devou Park and let us know what you think!
