Park History

Mt. Airy Forest is Cincinnati’s largest park at almost 1,500 acres. It was established in 1911 out of several unproductive farms, and was the first municipal reforestation in America.

A crew of young African Americans were employed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (a federal jobs program during the Great Depression) to build service roads, the large check dams in West Fork Creek and—along with more skilled laborers working for the Works Progress Administration—most of the shelter, service and restroom buildings. They also planted more than one million trees.

Mt. Airy Arboretum is a 120 acres of which Cincinnati Parks curates and tagged 30 acres of gardens, woody vines, shrubs and trees hardy to the Cincinnati Area.

Features within the arboretum are gazebos and a picturesque lake which are favorite photo and wedding sites.
