Bicentennial Commons opened in 1988 as part of the city’s bicentennial celebration. The park extends from the National Steamboat Monument on the West side to a roller skating rink to the East and includes Yeatman’s Cove, The Serpentine Wall, the Public Landing, and the P&G Pavilion. Along its walking trails you can find many statues, sculptures, and historical markers. Among these are a statue of Cincinnatus, a geologic timeline, a towering monument to the great floods of Cincinnati, and of course the flying pigs which pay tribute to the meat packing industry that made the city as well as a map of the Ohio River paying tribute to the importance of this waterway. There are tennis courts and a playground and the park hosts many events throughout the year.
