Riverwalk and Smale Riverfront Park Walking Tour

Wednesday, June 25
RSVP by Tuesday, June 24 at [email protected]
This free event is open to all SEGD members and any non-members interested in learning more about the organization.
Join SEGD Cincinnati for a walking tour, where we will view and learn about the Riverfront, ORT and Riverwalk Pedestrian Wayfinding project, lead by Laura Martin with the City of Cincinnati DOTE. The three signage systems help guide pedestrians from Second Street down to the Riverfront; along the Riverwalk trail in Smale Riverfront Park; and bicyclists/ pedestrians on the Ohio River Trail as they move between the riverfront parks. Steve Shuckman with Cincinnati Parks will also be on site to discuss some of the existing features, such as the Black Brigade Monument, and future development at Smale Riverfront Park.
"Smale Riverfront Park is a park for the generations—a compelling recreational, entertainment and leisure resource for the entire Greater Cincinnati community. Its many and varied features—including fountains, walkways, gardens, event lawns, playgrounds and restaurants—contribute to the emotional and physical health of its citizens; to the economic vitality of the region and to the exceptional quality of life and experience to be cultivated and enjoyed throughout the area.” http://mysmaleriverfrontpark.org/
We will meet on East Mehring Way, in front of the Cincinnati Bike Center at Smale Riverfront Park. The Bike Center is located at the foot of the Walnut Street Fountain/Steps. It is also conveniently located at one of the entries into the Central Riverfront Parking Garage, which runs underneath The Banks development (enter on Mehring Way).
