Hyde Park :: Noteworthy
Hyde Park Square is the hub around which the neigborhood revolves. Kilgour Fountain, the work of Cincinnati-born sculptor Joseph Cronin, dominates the central portion of the inviting green space at the Square's mid-section. Shops, restaurants and offices line the streets that circle and radiate out from the Square.
The entire area is a gathering place for residents and visitors, who window shop, stop for coffee, snack in a sidewalk cafe, eat ice cream from the local Graeter's, and stroll around and through the Square. The local fire station sets out bowls of water to accommodate the many thirsty dogs being walked in the summertime, and sometimes the firemen stand outside and talk to visiting kids. The Square hosts an annual Art Show, and in the summer, a farmers' market is located nearby.
