Effective June 29, 2020 Cincinnati Parks is temporarily closing to vehicular traffic the section of Burnet Woods Drive winding through the center of the park (see below map). The road will remain open for pedestrian and bicycle traffic. This change was planned as one component of the Park Board 2007 Master Plan and has been supported by many in the surrounding communities.

The reason for the closure is to create additional green space within the center of the park by making this area of the park safer for pedestrians and cyclists. At present, this steep section of the road allows vehicular traffic to cut through the park’s trail system. This can cause conflicts between cars and cyclists, and conflicts with children and adults since the trail system crosses the road at this location.

Cincinnati Parks will assess the impact on park users and park operations by reviewing feedback from individual park stakeholder organizations and users within and outside of the immediate vicinity. The closure will be re-evaluated in several months after adequate community feedback has been received.

Your feedback is important. This survey has been created as one convenient way to comment. Please also feel free to call Cincinnati Parks' main phone line 513-357-2604 or visit us at https://www.cincinnatiparks.com/customer-service/
