We invite you to join us for the 2023 Great Parks Forever Root Ball. Enjoy an evening of dinner and cocktails while you listen to, learn from and lead with fellow inspired outsiders. Be the first to learn how we are activating our acres to position the region as a vibrant and healthy place to live, learn, work, and play. [Attire is rustic chic.]

public transportation. Rhinegeist is located at Stop 11 – Brewery District on the Cincinnati Connector streetcar route.


Complimentary valet parking will be available.


Great Parks Forever, the philanthropic partner for Great Parks of Hamilton County, translates an early conservation promise into everyday experiences and lasting legacies.
