Otto Armleder Park

This 238-acre park located in the Linwood neighborhood is named for Otto Armleder (1862-1935), a Cincinnati businessman who owned a carriage manufacturing company, which later turned into a truck company.  A philanthropist, Mr. Armleder also donated some of his wealth to benefit the city and the park system.

The park is a collaborative effort between the Cincinnati Park Board, Hamilton County Park District, and Cincinnati Recreation Commission.  There are hiking trails, picnic shelters, a playground, huge fields and meadows, and soccer fields.  The park also has a 10-acre dog park and access to the Little Miami River.  There are bike paths around the park as well as a new 1.9 mile trail connecting the park to the Lunken Field loop and the Ohio River Trail.
