CINCINNATI – Cincinnati Gardens, a long-time sporting and event venue, is set to be demolished this year to make way for nearly 300 proposed manufacturing jobs in a new deal inked this week.
The Port of Greater Cincinnati Development Authority on Wednesday approved a contract to acquire the property, located at 2250 Seymour Ave. in Bond Hill, for $1.75 million. The 19-acre site will be repurposed, its leaders said, for future light manufacturing.
Cincinnati Gardens had a long run for a sports and entertainment venue. Sixty-seven years is a long time. Riverfront Stadium only lasted 32 years. A lot of notable and memorable events took place at Cincinnati Gardens. There's a lot of history there. It's okay to respect history, but you can't revere it. You always have to look towards the future.
