    Visit Groves Memorial Park and Water Tower

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The water tower here isn't all that spectacular, but this park is really neat. It is tied to one of the first Arbor Days in the country. They planted the park into several different groves and dedicated each grove to a different type of person, like presidents, authors etc. At one point there is a wall of plaques dedicate to "presidential authors". You can also follow the bridge to some scenic lookouts over the Ohio River and the cities of Cincinnati and Covington. The most interesting thing I noticed in this park are what appear to be the graves of children who died between four and eleven years of age around the turn of the last century. I looked, but I couldn't find any information on what why they were buried in this park or by whom.
