Located in the northern Cincinnati neighborhood of Montgomery, Pioneer Park is a hidden gem that offers a paved walking trail, soccer fields, two ball fields, butterfly gardens, a fishing pond, a 35-foot gazebo, and much more.
Named after the founding pioneers of Montgomery who traveled to the area from New York, the park is lined with plaques about the history of the founders along with a tree grove that memorializes past citizens who served the community in different ways.
In this post we share a complete guide to Pioneer Park.
Walking Trails & Fishing Ponds
One of our favorite parts of Pioneer Park is the .54 paved walking trail that loops around the park, which loops around the pond in the center of the park, a wooded area on the outer edges, and a flowing creek on the perimeter of the park.
Located in the heart of the park is a large fishing pond that features two bench swings where you can sit and enjoy the scenery.
There are also several benches located around the perimeter of the pond that offer more spots to sit and enjoy the scenic pond.
Gazebo & Butterfly Gardens
A massive 35-foot gazebo surrounded by butterfly shaped flower beds is located near the front of the park.
This is the perfect spot to host a small to medium gathering and is available to be reserved for parties and other occasions year-round.
The walking trail that loops around the park offers some nice views of different scenery including a wooden bridge that crosses over into a wooded area.
As you continue further along the path, you’ll encounter a flowing creek that offers a nice spot for kids to explore or dogs to play in.
Whether you’re interested in going for a peaceful walk, hosting a gathering at a gazebo, or enjoying some views of a fishing pond, Pioneer Park offers all of these things and more.
