63. Eden Park
This land, once was Nicholas Longworth’s vineyard that he called the, "Garden of Eden". Longworth donated the land to the city and a 100 million gallon reservoir was built on it. In later years, after the reservoir was removed, it was turned into Eden Park. The park is made up of 186 acres of land where you will find many nice features such as statues like the one pictured above, the Presidential grove where a tree has been planted for each President starting with the elm planted for George Washington back in 1882, walking trails, the Hinkle Magnolia Garden, as well as some sites that are highlighted in the sections that follow. The park was designed by award winning architect Adolph Strauch who is also responsible for the design of Spring Grove Cemetary and Arboretum.
