OVER-THE-RHINE, OH (FOX19) - Washington Park in Over-the-Rhine is being recognized as a "Frontline Park" by the national urban park advocacy organization City Parks Alliance.
Washington Park is among the examples of urban park excellence, innovation, and stewardship across the country. The park underwent a $48 million dollar renovation and expansion and re-opened to the public in 2012.
“We selected Washington Park for recognition because it exemplifies the power of partnerships to create and maintain urban parks that build community and make our cities sustainable and vibrant,” said Catherine Nagel, Executive Director of City Parks Alliance. “We hope that, by shining the spotlight on this park, we can raise awareness about both the necessity and the promise of these kinds of partnerships to spur investment in our nation’s urban parks.”
