Improvements in

burnet woods

Our work here supports park activation through wellness programming, invasive species removal, and other capital improvements.

Burnet Woods is a 90-acre park near the University of Cincinnati that features Trailside Nature Center, hiking trails, a fishing lake, a historic bandstand, playgrounds, shelters, picnic areas and a disc golf course. This park serves the Clifton, CUF, and Corryville neighborhoods.

Our Stewards of Burnet Woods members support a special restricted fund within the Cincinnati Parks Foundation. This fund supports capital improvements and programming for Burnet Woods such as: trail restoration, tree planting, invasive removal, updated signage, enhanced amenities, and free wellness classes.

This community-led fundraising campaign, which began in 2019, has raised over $100,000 for several capital improvements within Burnet Woods and is producing wonderful results. Improvements and fundraising priorities are identified in collaboration with the Stewards donors and Cincinnati Park Board.

To date, the following projects have been completed:

  • “Permit Only” Parking Signs removed around the Bandstand
  • New Burnet Woods Park identification sign installed on Clifton Ave.
  • Existing sign poles straightened
  • New LED lights installed at Valley Shelter
  • New lights installed at the Upper Shelter
  • Wood railings replaced at the Fishing Station
  • Light poles painted at the
  • Upper Shelter

  • Bike Racks are purchased
  • 40 new picnic tables (including ADA accessible tables) installed
  • Partial trail renovations including new bridges and steps
  • Bollards to close off the center roadway to cars are ordered
  • A short-term stormwater management plan is developed
