There are certain places destined to become instant classics. Smale Riverfront Park is one of those special places. Located right on the river in downtown Cincinnati, Smale has become a presence in the Queen City’s iconic riverfront since opening a decade ago. It’s easy to see why; between the different playgrounds (P&G go Vibrantscape, River Play, Heekin Family/PNC Grow up Great Adventure Playground, Fath Fountain), always-happening events, and endless green spaces perfect for eating and relaxing, this is a Cincinnati park that just oozes Cincy kid appeal. Smale has been a regular on our summer parks rotation for years now; a destination that’s always met with an enthusiastic chorus of approval.
