Come out and play! Show up any time, and stay as late as you'd like! Bring a picnic lunch if you can stay through lunch. Meet new moms and wear your kids out with fun as we explore parks together this summer!
Smale Park is a summertime favorite! It's enormous and takes up a couple city blocks downtown. There is a playscape, giant checkers and chess boards, a piano you can walk on, porch style swings along the river, etc. The highlights are the almost dozen fountains and water features for kids to play in. Bring swim gear!
Also, plan to pay $5-$10 for parking. There's a parking garage at Mehring Way & Pete Rose Ave W. There's also a large parking lot further down Mehring Way, on the right before you get to the Bengals stadium.
This is a huge park. Moms usually break off in pairs or smaller groups to explore because of its enormousy. Text or FB message a mom to find out where they are when you arrive. This isn't the greatest park for meeting new mommas — just because of it's location. But it's still a favorite park for many and always requested by the kids!
Most park playdates are attended by moms with 1-12 year olds. We host a park playdate every week of the summer. For the full schedule and locations, visit Clough Pike Baptist Church
on facebook. Feel free to attend those you can, even if it's just one or
