Herbert Greer French willed this 275-acre park to the city of Cincinnati in 1943. The land once was a Native American trail. John Cleves Symmes purchased the land from the United States Congress. Located in the park is the French House, which was built in 1805. The home has a large outdoor terrace with beautiful flower gardens surrounding it. The home can be rented for private events. Near the home is a caretaker’s cottage, which is used by the Cincinnati Art Academy for teaching.
The park contains hiking trails that wind through the hilly and wooded terrain. There are meadows and creeks in the park as well as a distant view of Cincinnati. A playground and picnic shelter can be found here as well.
