A Great Conservation Area

Richardson Forest Preserve

With an original gift of 162 acres from Mrs. Ann Richardson, this preserve has been protected by Great Parks since 1978.

Its 413 acres, including 1.34 acres of freshwater marsh, serves as a habitat for many rare and unusual plant species, including skunk cabbage, marsh marigold and five-angled dodder. Mrs. Ann Richardson donated the land in memory of her husband, Dr. Albert S. Richardson.

Conservation areas are managed by Great Parks to preserve some of Greater Cincinnati's most beautiful natural features. No public parking or facilities, including bathrooms, are available.
