Fernbank Park

  • Hike along the Ohio River watching for black vultures soaring high above. Note the white feathers on their wing tips.
  • Fernbank was once three separate areas: Lee Park, Dam Site 37 and River Park. Before that the property belonged to John Cleves Symmes in the 1790s. You are currently walking in the property formerly known as Lee Park. Its varied history includes experimental stock breeding and a race track.
  • Where the railroad is now was once part of the Whitewater Canal, built in the 1830s to transfer produce from Indiana to Cincinnati. In the 1850s, the canal was abandoned and converted to a railroad bed.
