Devou Park is by far the recreational jewel of our City. This 704 acre park was donated to the City by William H. Devou. The park contains Devou Park Golf Course, an 18-hole course; Prisoner's Lake, a fishing lake; the Bandshell which hosts a summer concert series presented by the Kentucky Symphony Orchestra; two miles of paved walking, jogging, biking trails; three picnic shelters; the Overlook Viewing Area; the Behringer-Crawford Museum; and the Drees Pavilion.
Devou Park recently underwent a comprehensive review with public discussions on a vision for the park resulting in the Devou Park Master Plan. The City has also partnered with Kentucky Mountain Biking Association, Cincinnati Off-Road Alliance, Duke Energy, and Give Back Cincinnati for a project called Blazing Trails to construct mountain biking and hiking trails on the west side of the Park. The tentative opening for public use of these trails is scheduled for the Spring of 2010.
