(June 12, 2020 - Blue Ash)
Oakwood Park in Blue Ash officially opened last evening after a ribbon-cutting ceremony.
The approximately $400,000 park improvement project, located at Oak Avenue and Idalia Avenue, includes a new community shelter and playground. The site also features an updated basketball court, new grills, new restroom facilities, and additional parking.
“Since 1880 and throughout its growth, the Hazelwood neighborhood and its residents have served as a multi-cultural example of diversity and community spirit,” said Mayor Marc Sirkin. “Thank you to the Hazelwood Community and citizens throughout Blue Ash who attended open houses and helped shape this vision. We appreciate all of the support that made this park renovation a reality.”
Blue Ash Revitalization Inc. and the Greater Cincinnati Foundation provided funding for the renovation.

Before approving the Oakwood Park plan, the City held four public information sessions, including two open houses. City Council also discussed the plan in open sessions.
