Nestled into Cincinnati’s central business district, Lytle Park features a panorama of floral displays changing from tulips, magnolia and crabapple in the spring, to annuals and perennials in the summer and to annuals mixed with chrysanthemums in the fall.
The 2.31 acre park, bounded by Fourth and Lawrence Streets, is the original site of the Lytle family homestead, built in 1809 by General William Henry Lytle. The Park also features an 11-foot tall heroic bronze statue of Abraham Lincoln.

- Lytle Park’s heroic bronze portrayal of Abraham Lincoln stands 11 feet in height. Artist George Grey Barnard (1863-1938) was commissioned by the Charles P. Taft family to create the work, which took him five years to complete. The statue was dedicated in 1917 by former U.S. President William Howard Taft, younger half-brother of Charles.
