Ault Park, located in Cincinnati, Ohio, is a little gem that's just about in my own backyard. It's a 224 acre park in the Hyde Park/Mount Lookout area of Cincinnati.
The gardens were designed by renowned landscape architect, Albert D. Taylor, and named after Levi and Ida Ault who played a big roll in developing Cincinnati parks. They were opened to the public on May 30, 1930. The gardens have changed quite a bit through the years. Today, the main attractions are a dahlia garden, and the Hilda Rothchilde Memorial Old Fashioned Rose Garden.
There is also an Italian-style Pavilion located on the grounds, which is a popular site for weddings. The gardens are open year round from 6 AM to 10 PM. Admission is free.
