  • Playgrounds

    The harbor features a traditional playground as well Parky’s Ark wet playground. 

    Due to hiring challenges, reduced staffing levels, and budgetary constraints, Great Parks of Hamilton County’s wet playgrounds at Winton Woods and Woodland Mound will not open in 2021. The Sharon Woods water feature play area for kids is running daily and will remain open since it does not require additional staffing.

  • Canoe/Kayak Launch

    Licensed private kayak, canoes and stand-up paddleboards are permitted on Winton Lake. The launch ramp is located near the harbor on Winton Lake east of the wet playground.

    The launch was funded through grants from the Ohio Department of Natural Resources NatureWorks Program and REI Co-op.
