Great Parks of Hamilton County

Go Big Day!

Join Great Parks for a full day of fun at Go Big Day! We’re celebrating the opening of the Beechmont Bridge Connector Trail, and you’re invited to be a part of the celebration.

The Beechmont Bridge Connection Project is a half-mile link that is the final phase of a larger trail connection project designed to connect the Little Miami Scenic Trail to the Lunken Airport Trail, the Ohio River Trail, and downtown Cincinnati.

Come on foot or on wheels at Go Big Day! You can be among the first to experience the new Beechmont Connector via a trail hike, use of an e-bike provided by Montgomery Cyclery or personal trail exploration, among many other festivities at Otto Armleder Memorial Park. Guests can participate in the Go Big 5K Run, presented by Fleet Feet x Hoka; take a trail hike; play lawn games; learn about stream animals; listen to live music; sip on a local beer and more. Check out the complete list of the day’s activities below.

Go Big Day! is presented in partnership with Fleet Feet Cincy, Montgomery Cyclery, Bark Park & Patio, Fifty West Brewing and Big Ash Brewing.

Great Parks is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic closely and will make adjustments as necessary, with guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and Hamilton County Public Health.
