Spring Blooms in Ault Park

Rikki Teeters

Ault Park is one of our favorite parks in Ohio! Located in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Cincinnati, this park is the perfect place to spend your day! The park includes a beautiful stone structure, several overlooks, and many gardens. Take some time to get lost in the park! We took these photos on a recent stroll while the Cherry Blooms were blooming.
