Mariemont Concourse and Miami Bluff

Mariemont is located on a plateau or bluff overlooking the Little Miami River just before it joins with the Ohio River on the eastern side of Cincinnati.  The road along this bluff is called Miami Bluff, with some of the largest and most expensive homes in Mariemont being located along the Miami Bluff.  Towards the eastern end of bluff is located what is known as the Mariemont Concourse.  It is a park that contains a stone trellis overlooking the Little Miami River and the view beyond with built-in benches where one can sit.  There is also a beautiful landscaped garden and park benches as park of the Concourse.  At the western end of the bluff is located both the Mariemont Swimming Pool and a small road leading to the bottom of the bluff and the Little Miami River.  As illustrated in the photograph below, at the bottom of the bluff are the remains of what was once a central heating plant that provided steam heating to the original Dale Park section of Mariemont.
