I grew up in Park Hills, and I still spend quite a bit of time roaming the streets there today. I thought I would share some of my favorite things to do and see in and around Park Hills & Devou Park with you so that you too will know about some of the fabulous things this gem of a city has to offer.
When spending a day in Park Hills & Devou Park I highly recommend starting the day at Reality Tuesday, where you will find coffee, tea, sweets, baked goods and more. You can read all about it here, in Michelle’s post.
After breakfast head over to Trolley Park on Amsterdam Road with the kids. We just went there last week for a playdate, and I was excited to see a brand-new park. They just finished renovations & have installed new equipment. There are also a few picnic tables if you’ve packed a snack or lunch. And there’s a great big grassy area for running or playing ball, or just laying on the picnic blanket reading a book. The boys had a blast! It’s a beautiful park, surrounded by gorgeous flowers planted by the Village Green Committee.
After Trolley Park there are several options. For starters, you could take a walk through Devou Park. There are paved walking paths throughout the park, and the scenery is always pretty. I love taking walks through the park (Often times you’ll even see deer!). Devou Park is not technically part of Park Hills, it is in Covington, but it’s so close!
During your walk be sure to stop by the “Overlook” by the Drees Pavilion for a breath-taking view of Covington & Cincinnati. This is another perfect picnic spot, and there are a few more playgrounds for the kids at the overlook and also near the Concert Bowl in Devou.
While in Devou, be sure to stop by the Behringer Crawford Museum for a visit! So many cool things to do and see there, and you can read all about it in my post found here.
If you know someone who is looking for a place to host an event (wedding, holiday celebration, office party, etc), there are two great places in this area: the Drees Pavilion and The Gardens of Park Hills.
After a busy day in Park Hills & Devou I highly recommend heading to Szechuan Garden on Dixie Highway in Park Hills for dinner. It’s one of my family’s favorite places to eat!
Have I left something out? Do you know of something fun to do in Park Hills or Devou Park? Please leave a comment!
