International Friendship Park in Cincinnati Ohio

During our summer vacation last year, we decided to split our destination in four different states.  We went to Tennessee first then we explored North Carolina a little bit, then we spent two days in Kentucky and Ohio.  That's one great part of doing road trips because you can basically change your itinerary.  On our first day in Kentucky, we did not have much time left so we search for some relaxing place to explore.  The nearest park was the  Theodore M. Berry International Friendship Park in Cincinnati Ohio.

I was amazed how  excellent park this park is.  It really exceeded my expectation of a park.  It's a perfect place to run or family walk. It was  hot when we visited, the temperature was unbearable but the decent amount of shade from all the trees and plants that surrounds it, makes the hot temperature  more bearable.  I like it that  it offers free parking but it made me weary to see the caution signs of not leaving  valuables in the car which indicates that there are incidents of theft or something like that.  The parking area is connected to Sawyer Point, Yeatman's Cove, Smale Riverfront Park, The Banks, the bridges, and the steps up to Mount Adams which is excellent.  You can basically go to these places by exploring the park first.  
Although this park is not very large and it’s hidden away on the banks of the Ohio River on Riverside Drive in Cincinnati, we've seen  many people  biking, walking,  jogging, and walking their dogs. I  didn't know this but there is  path to  the playground under the bridge called Every Child’s Playground at Sawyer Point. Again, we didn't have much time to fully research the place so miss that part but overall, we had so much fun exploring this park.
According to the information I read online, the park was made “as a lasting tribute to world unity and global understanding”.  The love of gardening in me  was ecstatic to find that the gardens are full of plants representing various continents. I was like a child exploring the beautiful  flowers in each of the gardens.  We were all in awe of all the very cool sculptures throughout the park .  I will be featuring each of the features one by one in my next posts.
For now I will leave you with some of the fun shots we took during our  short but fun journey at the International Friendship Park.

Theodore M. Berry International Friendship Park is located at 1135 Eastern Avenue.  So if you are Florence Kentucky or Cincinnati area, make sure to check this out.  Kids will have fun exploring and of course adults too.
