We are fortunate to be able to offer a walking tour of the recently opened Lick Run Greenway in Cincinnati’s South Fairmount neighborhood.
The Greenway improves water quality by carrying rainwater directly to Mill Creek from the Lick Run watershed, preventing over 800 million gallons of overflow per year by avoiding contact with the city sewer system. In addition to being an engineering feat, the mile-long urban stream and pond is a public park that includes walking and biking paths, a recreation area, and signage to educate visitors on the historic and cultural heritage of the Greenway and South Fairmount.
Speakers from Gray & Pape, Human Nature, Kolar Design, and the Metropolitan Sewer District will share stories of the teamwork that brought this remarkable community resource into existence.
The event is free and open to all, but please RSVP to allow us to estimate a head count. Link to RSVP: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/lick-run-greenway-tour-tickets-159544655359
