Washington Park in Cincinnati Ohio

I can't believe it's been over a year since we had this fun adventures with the Dias family.  I'm the slowest turtle or snail on earth when it comes to posting about our travels.  We decided to met up with them after our vacation in Tennessee last year since it has been years since our  get together in Texas. We were suppose to go the Noah's Arc Encounter together but we did not make it due to time constraints.    
We stayed in Kentucky while they stayed in Cincinnati so we decided to explore the city.  Washington Park was one of the places we checked after we spent  hours in Newport Aquarium.    It was very hot that day and it will give the kids  some fun while the adults are catching up.  
This place is beautiful. It's bounded by West 12th, Race and Elm Streets in the Over-the-Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. The park has an old-fashioned bandstand and many trees. Several American Civil War cannons and busts of Civil War heroes Frederick Hecker and Colonel Robert Latimer McCook, who commanded the German 9th Ohio Infantry are in the park.
The park stands in the shadow of the Cincinnati Music Hall. While the now-demolished Washington Park School was located at its north end, a new School for Creative and Performing Arts currently stands across Twelfth Street at its south end.
The new Washington Park's  green space has been expanded from six to eight acres, and the amenities include a dog park, interactive water fountains, refreshed public restrooms, a concession building, a “civic lawn” that will host concerts and events, shade from the summer sun, and a kids’ section.
The interactive water fountain is a favorite among children.  We knew the moment the kids saw the fountain, they would want to soak in so we let them, after all it was so hot that it would refresh them.
We had so much fun with the Dias family.  We came close friends through blogging.  She's the only blogger I have connected when my family was still living in South Korea back in 2008.  When we came back here in the mainland, our families met in Disney World and since then, we go on vacation from time to time.  
Our children became friends and so does our husbands.  You can really found genuine  people in the blogging world.
