Riverview Playground Entrance

The Riverview Playground Entrance was once a gateway for the Marine Hospital, which stood at the base of Mt. Adams. The hospital was torn down in the early 1900’s but the entrance stayed when the site was converted to the Riverview Playground. Also known as the, “Good Friday” arch, it remained in its original place until around 1988-89 when it was dismantled and placed in storage. It was around this time that the construction of the Adams Landing condominiums started.

When repairs and expansion of the steps to Mt. Adams began several years ago, the arch was taken out of storage and put back together to serve as the entrance to Mt. Adams from the base of the hill. The Riverview Playground Entrance is designated a Cincinnati Historic Landmark.
