Dwell Magazine Honors Ault Park as one of World's Best Public Spaces

Dwell Magazine looked for the best public places to linger, people watch and take in nature's bounty. They have chosen everything from sculpture parks to urban plazas and now they have chosen Ault Park.  Long loved by residents of  the city, May and Levi Ault donated the park land to the City of Cincinnati in 1911.  It is our fourth largest park.  Offerings include a soccer field, playground, huge flower gardens where you can have a plot and the central pavilion.  

Go there on a star-filled night, bring a blanket and enjoy identifying the constellations or add it to next year's Fourth of July calendar, now.  You may want to go enjoy Summer Sips Vodka Tasting and dance to the music of Lagniappe on July 12th, too.

Summer Camps to Explore at the Carnegie Center

by The Cincinnati Team

​​Carnegie Center of Columbia Tusculum Summer Camps  

The Carnegie Center, located in Columbia Tusculum, is one of the many donated over the years by Andrew Carnegie. It was designed by the renowned architectural firm of Samuel Hannaford. The Beaux Arts building has large, arched windows, 22-foot ceilings, patterned wood floors and is flooded with light. It was a public library until 1959 and is now directed by the Columbia Tusculum Neighborhood Association.

Partly due to a donation from Artsworks, they are bringing many activities and summer camps to the area this summer.  There is something for almost any interest.  Consider summer chess, salsa, island, or hip hop dancing, Hindu arts and movement, or Nigerian Drumming.  The Art Academy is teaching classes in Narrative Painting, Comic Drawing, and Figure drawing.  Next year the Playhouse in the Park will also be bringing two of their Off the Hill productions (January 19 and May 18th)

To find out more about the activities that will set the building to humming this year, see their website.
