Central Parkway Enhancement



Upgrades to a downtown greenway fulfill original vision of George Kessler’s 1907 Cincinnati Park Master Plan.


Project Type: Streetscape
Client: City of Cincinnati
Length: 5,000 LF
Construction Cost: $800,000

KZF Design, in partnership with Human Nature and the Cincinnati Park Board, designed a streetscape enhancement plan to create a sustainable and visually attractive greenway, with a new irrigation system, electrical service and edge pavers. Reconstruction of the medians replaced the existing landscaping, to enhance and beautify the parkway to convey the proper image of an attractive, ceremonial entrance to downtown, linking it to the historic Over-The-Rhine community.
