I'm pretty proud of this little gem in Cincinnati because my grandfather donated the land to the city of Sharonville. It's a great family Legacy for us and a very cool place for everyone else to check out fossils and learn about different layers of...More

Not conveniently. The 67 runs through Shraonville but only during rush hour and the stops are not on Hauck road to my knowledge.

It is open throughout the year. Nobody's patroling the area. It's pretty much self service park. It has public restroom, water fountains.
