A pretty fountain and a nice public square that looks as if there must always be something going on. A great skating rink during my visit in February. This park looks like a great place to find a spot to sit and watch the world pass by!

Such a cute little square with many restaurants to visit. During our visit there was also an ice skating rink. It was small and more slippery than inside rinks, but t was abnormally warm when we were there. Still a dream come true to outside skate in a city. The little New Years set up seemed fun too.

The square has some nice restaurants and ice cream and things but the attraction is the fountain. Very cool and detailed. There are of... More

Fountain Square is an integral part of the landscape of Cincinnati. I always feel like home when I see the lady in the fountain. Its fun to walk around the area and very close to good stores, places to eat, parks and museums. The only drawback to the square these days is the awful gaudy monstrosity that is the stage... More
