What's your favorite part about living here?
Cincinnati, and Hyde Park in particular, is a great place to come home from work, park the car, go for a run, walk or bike ride, then walk to grab a great dinner/drinks. And the assortment of restaurants can take you to India, Korea, China, Italy, or a good ole American burger and fries.
What do you want people to know about your neighborhood?

Lovely, old, stately homes, mature, majestic trees, two incredible parks: Alms Park and Ault Park, Hyde Park Square, and Mt Lookout Square.
