This perfect park is a fun neighborhood playground, the Battery Hooper Park, on Highland Avenue in Ft. Wright. Located adjacent to the James A. Ramage Civil War Museum, this playground is perfect for children of all ages. If you read my “perfect park” segments here on Family Friendly Cincinnati, you know that one thing I love in a playground for my kids is shade, and this playground is surrounded by trees, so there is lots of shade for the baby to rest in while his siblings explore and run amuck. This playground has lots of structures for climbing, a small playhouse, slides, swings, and a large sandbox.
There are also benches surrounding the park for sitting and reading or resting. The few times I have been to the playground we had the place almost to ourselves. I think this park would be perfect for a playdate with my children’s friends. The only problem I had with the park is that I didn’t see any restrooms, but perhaps there were some at the Museum, which is just a stone’s throw away down a paved path. I think that one day we might have to walk over there and explore the Civil War Museum as well. So if you are looking for a new park to discover with your children, be sure to stop by this little playground!
