Parks and Recreation

 

Union Township currently operates and maintains four parks: Veterans Memorial Park, Clepper Park, Ivy Point Park and Mt. Carmel Park. The township views the parks as a major asset, providing both active and passive recreational activities for all to enjoy.

The shelters at our parks are available for reservation. The rental form is located in the "Resource Documents".  There is no cost for a resident of Union Township, and a $100 cost for a non-resident.

The parks are open to the public from dawn until dusk.

If you are interested in reserving time on one of the baseball diamonds, you can do so by filling out the necessary form which can be found in the "Resource Documents". Please submit that form to Matt Taylor at the Union Township Service Department located at 4312 Glen Este-Withamsville Road.

 

Mt. Carmel Park

Mt. Carmel Park is the township's newest park, and at just over one and a half acres, it is also the smallest, often being referred to as a "Pocket Park." Mt. Carmel Park began to take shape in 2004. Development of this park included the removal of some selected trees and underbrush, re-grading the site, planting the grounds with grass, and the construction of the park sign. After the township was awarded a Community Development Block Grant, the park was equipped with picnic tables, benches, playground equipment and other amenities.

Even as the smallest park, Mt. Carmel Park is enjoyed for its lovely surroundings and relaxing atmosphere.

 

Veteran's Memorial Park

Located on the corner of Clough Pike and Glen Este-Withamsville Road, the 25-acre Veterans Memorial Park is a popular spot in Union Township. It offers much in the way of recreation, including tennis and basketball courts, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, sand volleyball courts, a walking track, an equipped playground, a fitness trail, a fishing pond, sheltered and unsheltered picnic areas with grills, and public restroom facilities. All of these facilities and the landscaping itself are kept clean and beautiful, thanks to constant upkeep from the Union Township Service Department. The park's facilities are used by many organizations throughout the year, including teams from the Southeast Cincinnati Soccer Association and select soccer, the Northeastern Tennis League, and both girls' and boys' baseball teams. Veterans Memorial Park is also a popular spot for events in the township. Some of the events held in the park include the Flags of Honor tribute , the military cemetery and Memorial Day Services, the Mental Health Association Vigil , and the military cemetery and Veterans’ Day Service , an event which has garnered national attention. In the fall of 2003 and again in 2013, a four-fifths scale model of the Vietnam Memorial Wall was brought to Veterans Memorial Park to honor those fallen in that war. The event was sponsored by the Clermont County Veterans' Service Commission and Union Township Trustees. More than 25,000 people visited the memorial, which had a mobile computer system onsite to research the location of names. The park is an important piece of both the township and county. The township is proud of its close ties to local veterans and veteran events, as well as the recreational amenities it offers its visitors.

 

Clepper Park

Encompassing 50 acres, Clepper Park is the largest park operated and maintained by Union Township. The park has entrances on Summerside Road and on Barg Salt Run Road. Clepper Park boasts a large number of recreational facilities, including basketball courts, soccer fields, baseball diamonds, a football field, walking track, fishing lake, an equipped playground, sheltered and unsheltered areas with grills, and public restroom facilities. All the shelters have hard surface walkways and some of the shelters have picnic tables which can accomodate wheelchairs. Many organizations make use of the park during the year. The Eastgate Soccer Association, St. Veronica's football program, and both boys' and girls' baseball and softball teams use the facilities. The basketball courts are used heavily throughout the year, and the track is popular for walking, jogging, bicycling, and skating. The fishing lake is a "catch and release" operation and offers both experienced and novice anglers a place to test their skills. Clepper Park is also the site for the township's largest salt storage shed, with a rated capacity of 1800 tons. Clepper Park-4722 Summerside Rd. Cincinnati, Ohio 45245

 

Ivy Pointe Park

Ivy Pointe Park is the township's fourth park. This park is located on Ivy Pointe Boulevard and is a pet-friendly park situated on just over eight acres. Ivy Pointe Park is graced with two beautiful gazebos, a paved walking trail, a pond, and a restroom facility. This park is unique in the sense that, as the surrounding business district grows, the walking path from the park will eventually encompass the entire business district. This is an incredible green space that capitalizes on the natural beauty of the area. Ivy Point Park-4267 Ivy Point BlvdCincinnati, Ohio 45245

 

Shor Park

Dedicated on Oct. 22, 2010, Shor Park is the newest addition to recreational facilities available to Union Township residents and visitors. Officially part of the Clermont County Park District, the 56-acre park is located at Tealtown and Schoolhouse roads in Union Township. The land, donated by Sylvia Shor in memory of her late husband, S. David Shor, was partially funded by Union Township Trustees. As part of the agreement, only five acres can be developed, and already include parking areas. In the future, picnic shelters and playgrounds may be developed there. The rest of the acreage is dedicated to nature trails, woods and meadows, providing a setting where people can enjoy wildlife and a natural environment.

Currently, the park boasts three walking trails, and it is the second park in the township to welcome dogs.
