I LOVE Smale Riverfront Park! It’s been such a great addition to the Cincinnati Riverfront and it continues to get better with each addition.
Smale Park is a place that I like to bring my family and out of town guests because it looks beautiful at all hours and has a lot of activity going on.
Here are a few tips for bringing kids to Smale Park
1. Ride the carousel first if you think that you would even consider going on it
It costs $2 and they do not allow wet riders on the carousel to help preserve it.
2. Pack Sunscreen
Several areas of the park are new which means that there is not a lot of shade available yet.
3. Bring a change of clothes and towels
Your kids WILL want to get wet. There are so many great fountain areas that you might even be tempted to join in the fun too.
4. To save time, have your kids wear their swimsuits to the park
5. Bring a water bottle and snacks because kids are ALWAYS hungry
There are several water fountains that you can refill it at
6. Pack or wear flip flops
It’s a pain to constantly be putting back on socks and shoes between the different sections of the park
7 Allow time to explore all of the different park areas
Smale Riverfront Park provides lots of free fun for the whole family to enjoy. You can also live out your dream to play music on a giant keyboard with your feet like in the movie BIG.
