Fleischmann Gardens

This beautifully landscaped 4-acre park is located on the site of the home of Charles Fleischmann, the founder of the Fleischmann Yeast Company and father of Cincinnati Mayor Julius Fleischmann. Fleischmann’s heirs gave the land to the city in 1925 and the park was expanded in 1976 when an adjacent piece of land owned by the Salvation Army was purchased.

The park has the largest ginkgo tree in the state along with an ornate Iron Gate entrance topped with a gaslight on Washington Avenue. There is also a stone path that leads down to a maze of evergreens
