Yeatman's Cove edit

The Otto Armleder Aquatic Park in Yeatman's Cove, along the Cincinnati riverfront.

Yeatman's Cove park occupies the former site of a tavern established in 1793 by Griffin Yeatman.[2] Yeatman's establishment was the first tavern in Cincinnati, and as such was very popular with men working on the river.[3] The park features a colossal bronze statue of Cincinnatus, the namesake of Cincinnati, and is a popular place to watch the Cincinnati Bell/WEBN Riverfest at Labor Day weekend.[4]

Serpentine Wall edit

The Serpentine Wall is a serpentine-shaped flood wall on the banks of the Ohio River, located at Yeatman's Cove. Completed in 1976,[5] the wall features steps descending to the river, upon which visitors can sit and look across to Northern Kentucky.[6]
