Our Success

Smale Riverfront Park

Cincinnati Parks Foundation is proud to have partnered with Cincinnati Parks for the development of Smale Riverfront Park. As “Everyone’s Front Yard,” the park provides our urban core with beauty, tranquility, nostalgia, joy and enrichment. This would not have been possible without the generosity of so many. Smale Riverfront Park will be enjoyed for generations to come.
