Stay Hydrated

Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Cincinnati in July can be hot. It’s quite a distance from one end of the park to the other. With all the walking you’ll be doing, make this a priority. Take advantage of the free water stations.

More “What to Bring” for Families:

  2. Earmuffs or earplugs for ear protection
  3. A first aid kit, Band-Aids, and Neosporin
  4. Baby wipes (even if you don’t have a kid, these can be great to have)
  5. If using formula, please use plastic bottles with disposable liner bags.
