"Almost everything you need"

Columbia Parkway is all highway except for the little strip that runs through the historic Columbia-Tuculum neighborhood. It's packed with historic homes and lots to do. As you travel Columbia Parkway from town until you slow down in the Village of Fairfax, it's the only business strip you'll find along the way. If you slow down a little instead of just passing through, you'll find something for everyone.

There's the Precinct Restaurant, a Cincinnati favorite for steaks. There's Green Dog Cafe for vegan fare and Allyn's for cocktails and Cajun. There's even a bagel spot. There's a yoga studio, a green goods store and a Gynboree, among other things. There are also a few business offices.

For recreation, Alms Park, Ault Park, Cincinnati Obervatory are a short drive from Columbia Parkway. Lunken Airport is an active airfield about 5 minutes away. They also have a playfield, picnic area and other family activities.

There are several schools within a few minutes drive. University and Christ Hospitals are about 15 minutes away. For groceries there's a Biggs nearby at the bottom of Beechmont Ave. Just off Columbia Parkway. There's also a Kroger and Remke/Biggs about 10 minutes away in Hyde Park Plaza.
