A new grassroots community involvement initiative to benefit
Smale Riverfront Park



IT’S FOR YOU!

The Women’s Committee is an organization that was created to provide meaningful financial and public support for Cincinnati Parks’ effort to build Smale Riverfront Park. Though the park is being built with a blend of City, State and Federal funds, substantial private donations are also needed to build many of the park’s unique features and to endow the park. This is why private giving is so important to this project.

The creation of this park is arguably one of the most important public projects our region has undertaken in this decade. That’s because as the city’s new front yard, Smale Riverfront Park is quickly becoming a destination venue for an estimated 1.1 million NEW visitors annually. Even in its earliest phases, the new park is already transforming Cincinnati’s riverfront into a powerful destination gateway that will fuel economic development, community health, commerce and tourism for the entire region.

Your generous gift will help us surpass our goals for 2013! And let us know of others who might also wish to add their voices to the rising crescendo of those who see the importance of building and endowing this amazing new park.
