Magrish Riverlands Preserve

The James Magrish Riverlands Preserve is a rich river bottom habitat situated along the National Scenic Little Miami River. The present tract exists as a result of the efforts of the city, the Cincinnati Recreation Commission, Little Miami Incorporated and the Cincinnati Park Board. Substantial funds were donated by Edith Krohn Magrish, in memory of her husband, James, a strong supporter of Little Miami Incorporated, to make the beauty of the area more accessible to the visiting public. The occasional flooding of the preserve provides an environment suited to the needs of an interesting variety of water-adapted wildlife. Wood Duck, Blue-Winged Teal, Willow Flycatchers and various species of frogs, as well as longed-legged wading birds, like Great Blue and Green Herons reside here. Fox, deer and muskrat can often be seen, as can signs of Beaver activity. The riverside location of this preserve also offers ideal vantage points for viewing river wildlife like painted and snapping turtles, Kingfisher and Osprey. The park features hiking trails, a scenic river overlook and a canoe launch.
