George Rogers Clark

Located in the historic Licking Riverside neighborhood, George Rogers Clark is the perfect park to enjoy a beautiful fall day. If you have visited recently, you probably noticed construction along the bank of the river. To prevent future sliding of Riverside Drive, a construction team is working over the next couple of months to reinforce the hill. Despite the construction, this park is still perfect for enjoying a view of the Cincinnati skyline, taking a moment of Zen, or learning local history from multiple statues in the area.
