Sitting on the edge of downtown and the corner of Over-the-Rhine is Cincinnati's Washington Park. Recently refurbished, the park is an oasis for local events, dog walkers and people watching. With glorious neighbors like Cincinnati's Music Hall, one can hear the sounds of the symphony and operatic voices in the air. It's a place overflowing with Cincinnati.

Honey toned, orange tipped, butter yellow, glowing green lowlands frame towering craggy capped mountains.
