Children’s Playground


The half-acre, 18,000 square foot, fenced children’s playground has features based on historic Cincinnati structures, created to symbolize the rich heritage of the Queen City. Features include a play castle, climbing wall, sandbox, dual slides, a canal boat in a stream, and musical instruments – all creatively integrated into a safe and imaginative play environment for children of all ages. The play area is programmed with free activities for all families to enjoy.


Washington Park’s children’s playground is safe, secure space, due in large part to the wonderful work of our on-site Play Ambassadors. The role of the Park Play Ambassador is to:

  • Ensure the playground area remains clean and safe for visiting patrons
  • Enforce park rules and regulations
  • Prevent the misuse of playground equipment and other Park facilities
  • Administer first aid care (when necessary)
  • Respond to patrons’ important questions and concerns

Monday – Thursday: 4pm to 10pm
Friday: 11am to 10pm
