The infrastructure news website The Infrastructist: America Under Construction has this piece about the six best new urban parks in America. Included among them is Cincinnati’s new Central Riverfront Park. From the site:
The park will be a full-featured attraction with playgrounds, water fountains, and restaurants. People living and working in the buildings being erected in the surrounding area will have the opportunity for easy recreation at their fingertips.
For those living a bit further away, Cincinnati is planning a streetcar line that will extend from the University of Cincinnati to the Banks, through the heart of downtown. Sounds like a nice combination!
