Community Cuts Ribbon on Kyle Plush Pavilion

Thanks to a grant from the State of Ohio, $25,000 in support from the Cincinnati Parks Foundation, and donations from the Mt. Washington community, a new pavilion opened in Stanbery Park. The Kyle Plush Pavilion will serve as a community gathering space for programs, concerts, and events. The Pavilion features a performance stage covered by a canopy, plus storage for the annual Pumpkin Chuck trebuchet.

The new Stanbery Park Pavilion is named after Kyle Plush in recognition of Kyle and of his grandparents Joe and Judy Zehren. Kyle was a long-time user of the Stanbery Park and volunteer. Joe and Judy Zehren have served the park for years selflessly working to maintain flower beds, pick litter, build bird and owl houses, plant redbud trees, and so much more.  

Community members gathered for the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Kyle Plush Pavilion at Stanbery Park in Mount Washington on Saturday, June 7, 2021. The ribbon-cutting ceremony and celebration included musical performances, community booths, children’s activities and even a birds of prey display.
