10 Jun Owls Nest Pavilion Demolition
The demolition of the pavilion at Owls Nest Park is postponed until Cincinnati Parks has an opportunity to meet with the surrounding communities. A previous version of this article stated demolition was to start the week of June 14th, as the building is structurally unsound.
We greatly appreciate the public reaching out and providing us feedback on the Owl’s Nest Pavilion. We too are saddened at the prospect of losing the long-time structure. Cincinnati Parks views the removal of one of our facilities as a last resort. We are glad to hear the interest from the community in exploring options further for the building as well as the site and welcome the opportunity to engage further.
The lower floor of the pavilion was used as the bathhouse for the CRC pool that was on site many years ago. It contains long unused toilet rooms and changing rooms. The upper floor had men’s and women’s rooms, but these also have been boarded up. The balcony at the back of the building has also been closed off for years due to illicit uses there since it is hidden from sight.
