Stephen-KarenConn Says: This new 24,000-square- foot multi-use facility opened at Sharon Woods Park in 1999. It contains a ranger station, exhibits, Nature's Niche Gift Shop, and an auditorium. Our favorite part of the Sharon Centre is the indoor children's play area, which is a great place to let...
Stephen-KarenConn Says: Perhaps the best thing in Sharonville is Sharon Woods, a 755 acre park which includes a beautiful 35 acre lake. There are hiking trails, picnic areas, concessions, fishing, boating, an 18 hole golf course, historic Heritage Village and more. The park is famous for it's ice...
Stephen-KarenConn Says: Originally known as the Blue Goose Saloon, the Blue Goose Sports Cafe is a gathering place in downtown Sharonville. Perhaps they changed the name to give it a more family friendly image in this conservative town. It has the look and feel of a much older establishment, but is...
Downtown Sharonville centers around an old railroad depot, but no trains come here any more, nor could they, because the tracks are now several blocks away. However there is a large freight switching yard in Sharonville, and an antique railroad engine is on the official logo for the city.
What to buy: Around Depot Square is an ecclectic assortment of shops, restaurants, offices, a bank, post office, and a good hardware store. It has the feel of a small town, even though, for all practical purposes, Sharonville was long ago swallowed up by Metropolitan Cincinnati.
What to pay: Sharonville doesn't have a Wal-mart or a Mall, even though there are huge malls and discounts stores on every side of us in the adjoining suburbs. That's why we seldom shop in Sharonville. Prices are generally lower just a short way down the street. We wish it weren't that way - but it is.

The cliffs are dangerous. You have to watch your step. The rocks are loose and there are no rails. I wear knee pads and I'm on my bottom a lot with my tools. Just be careful and you'll be fine. Keep your kids close. You never know about the strangers that show up in these places? It's kind of an out of the way place and not many people know about it. There are no bathrooms here yet. I brought my own bandaids, warer, snacks etc....

This is our favorite spot in Sharonville. It is actually one of several small waterfalls along the Sharon Creek Gorge in Sharon Woods Park. We sometimes see young people swimming here, although a sign says swimming is not allowed. I hate signs like that. If someone wants to be dumb enough to jump off a rock into shallow water, that should be their problem. Maybe the county, who owns the park, is afraid of being sued, so the sign covers their butt.
Anyway, the gorge is a beautiful, quiet, green place with lots of wildflowers, especially in spring. The rocks in Sharon Creek are a very good place to find fossils. We have sighted deer, raccoon and fox here, and there are an abundance of songbirds, as well as an occasional owl. In the gorge, and especially at Buckeye Falls, it's easy to forget that this park is just a small island of green surrounded by interstate highways, railroads, factories, businesses, and houses.
Sharon Woods Park, near the center of Sharonville, may be accessed from either Lebanon Road or Kemper Road.
