Y is for Yeatman's Cove


Yeatman's Cove is a park along the riverfront in downtown Cincinnati, and it is also the site of the founding of the city. Yeatman's is named for Griffin Yeatman, who arrived in Cincinnati in 1793 and was one of the city's earliest settlers.

The park is now the site of numerous summer parties and festivals and, along with it's neighbor Sawyer Point, it is a great place to go for a walk and enjoy the city.


I really don't have much to say about Yeatman's Cove, but this was all I could think of for a "Y" post. So I'm just going to leave it at that, and call it a week!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. See you Monday for the end of the Challenge! :)
