Nice place to visit year around. We visit my daughter at University of Cincinnati and we always like going downtown. In the winter they had ice skating ring set up and in fall and spring they had concerts going on.

We visited on a day threatening to rain so there wasn't much happening. I could see where this place would be full of energy on a sunny day.

A pretty square and a pretty fountain. They were having a food truck festival there the day we were there--but mostly it is just a nice public space.

Right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of downtown, there always seems like there is something going on there....free of charge! Concerts and craft fairs to fireworks or simply a nice place to sit and relax with a cup of coffee like a European work break, this is better than the average square located in the US and... More
