Lytle Park Series

Welcome to Lytle, the park that was rescued from 20th Century progress. Discovered by Cincinnati's first settlers in 1788 as wilderness, then a grove of peach trees, it became the grounds to an elegant estate and, later, the city's first public playground. In the 1960's this little park was to become an expressway....until Cincinnati cried out. In 1972, a restored Lytle Park became the first use of air rights over an expressway in Ohio. Because a lot of children who once played here, and many who came after them, would not let progress take the park.

These plaques are a gift of the Park Board Volunteers, a division of the Garden Center of Greater Cincinnati, and other public-spirited citizens.
