Fountain Square - Review

This is the most important town square of the city. The place is probably the busiest out of all as it is the center of all activities of everyone. The place is filled with shops, restaurants, offices, clubs and much more. Initially before this place was set up in this way, there was first an Indian mound and later a butcher’s market that was replaced to form this.

The name is so given due to the presence of the beautiful fountain that has been dedicated to David Tyler. The fountain is the main attraction here as well as an important landmark of the city. This is called The Genius of water. It looks like Jesus spreading his arms if we look the other way round. The fountain is completely coated with bronze imported from Munich and is still as attractive as it was earlier on.

  • Fountain Square is the center of downtown Cincinnati.Lots of events at noon and in the evening. If you are staying downtown you can't miss it. If you are staying else where you should find out what is happening there. Lots of good restaurants and bars nearby. It maybe worth the trip. Convenient parking under the square. Go and Enjoy.

  • If you are in the Cincinnati area or going to a football, baseball or other event. Fountain square is a great place to visit. There is also a few places to eat that are unique and not national chains. There was also a nice big Graters ice cream shop. This is in walking distance from baseball stadium.

  • Here for Bad Veins. I miss the square. I used to live a block away. I thought the drink prices were good. Bathroom situation is as always sketchy as heck. There were police in there checking on someone in the stall for too long. And while watching the show there was a guy video taping it and he asked me and my wife to move so he had a better shot of the stage. That really upset me. I wish I'd said something to him after the show.

  • All the fountain square events are family friendly and fun! We had a blast at reggae night, and we love salsa on the square too!

  • Great place for outdoor concerts in the summer. (Nothing going on in the winter beautiful fountain 10 min attraction) but in the summer Foodtrucks Fun and Festivities makes for a goodnight. Theirs lots of panhandlers and squatters around the outskirts so be prepared to tell half a dozen people you don't have money for "bus fare" and you don't buy cigarettes to hand them out like going out of business flyers. 4 stars only cause there is no 3.5
