Cincy Chic: What is Great Parks of Hamilton County?
Kinberly Whitton, Marketing Communication Coordinator: Great Parks of Hamilton County was created in 1930 with the mission to protect local natural resources and to provide outdoor recreation and education for area residents. Great Parks of Hamilton County is a separate political subdivision of the State of Ohio, governed by a Board of Park Commissioners.
Cincy Chic: Can you tell us more about the new dinner series?
Whitton: The new series offers three different types of themed dinners, Adventure, Mystery and Family, so to cater to different interests of our park guests. The series kicks off January 31 with an Adventure Dinner called “Alaskan Adventure.” All Adventure Dinners are made possible by a partnership with Roads Rivers and Trails (RRT), a local outfitter, and are themed around outdoor travels. The Family Dinners are for all ages and offer more fun, kid-friendly topics. The Mystery Dinners are for those 18 and up and offer interactive adult-humor.
