Stay Hydrated

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Cincinnati in June can be hot. It’s quite a distance from one end of the park to the other. With all the walking you’ll be doing, make this a priority. Take advantage of the free water stations.

*Re-read What to Bring and Stay Hydrated on this page. These things are even more important with kids.

More “What to Bring” for Families:

  1. A stroller or small wagon is permitted. The park is large, kids will get tired, and you don’t want to carry them.
  2. Earmuffs or earplugs for ear protection
  3. A first aid kit, Band-Aids, and Neosporin
  4. Baby wipes (even if you don’t have a kid, these can be great to have)
  5. If using formula, please use plastic bottles with disposable liner bags.
