There is a path stretching west from Bicentennial Commons along the river that provides a history on the development of our planet. While getting some exercise and enjoying the beautiful scenery along the Ohio River, you can learn a little bit of history.
There is a great deal to do right along the riverfront. The Montgomery Inn Boathouse is on the eastern edge of the downtown river front and as you walk west you come to Bicentennial Commons, the Purple People Bridge to Newport,KY, the Serpentine Wall, the US Bank Arena, the Great American Ball Park, then Paul Brown Stadium.
While at Bicentennial Commons you can play tennis, let the kids enjoy a playground, walk or ride a bike along the paths, watch the boats & enjoy the river, maybe catch a concert, check out the geology timeline, see the flying pigs, find out who Cincinnatus was and see a scale model of the Ohio River and the towns and locks along its way.
It is a family and pet friendly place to enjoy an afternoon. You will likely find kids playing, bicyclist riding, people walking dogs, couples kissing, others reading or people enjoying a picnic.
While downtown along the river, there are places to stop and look out onto the Ohio River. One place is at Bicentennial Commons. If you're lucky, you might just catch a paddlewheel boat passing by.
