Sharonville offers six city parks, all free and open to the public, in addition to two parks (Including Sharon Woods) operated by the Hamilton County Park District. These provide opportunities for golf, soccer, softball, volleyball, basketball, fishing and other individualized sports. The park pictured is our favorite of the Sharonville city parks, with very nice picnic areas, tennis courts, and ball fields.
Since we are people who enjoy the outdoors more than city life, the greatest redeeming factor of living in Sharonville, for us, is that our back yard joins Sharon Woods. Within these 755 acres are several options for hiking, and we take advantage of them almost every day. For starters, there is the 2.6 mile loop trail around the lake. This is a paved hike/bike trail and very popular - sometimes downright crowded during beautiful weather. The trail in the Sharon Creek Gorge (pictured) runs for almost a mile through deep woods along a beautiful creek with several small waterfalls. There are other pathways which lead through the fields, woods and picnic areas, so with a combination of them one could take a hike of just about any length desirable.
