"Garfield Place is a green oasis"

Garfield Place runs between Vine Street and Elm Street from east to west and is between W. 7th and W. 9th Streets from south to north. It offers a a green oasis in the center with Piatt Park, Cincinnati's oldest park. Prior to it being named Piatt Park, it was called Garfield Park due to the statue of Ohio native and U.S. President James A. Garfield, which faces the Vine Street entrance to Garfield Place and Piatt Park. At the opposite end of Piatt Park and Garfield Place is a statue of another president from Ohio, William Henry Harrison (although a native of Virginia, Harrison moved to Ohio upon his marriage.) Garfield Place interrupts the flow of E. 8th Street to W. 8th Street (a one-way street); Garfield Place actually runs both west and east on either side of Piatt Park.

At the corner of Garfield and Vine is a unique hotel, Garfield Suites. Garfield Suites Hotel offers large suites at a reasonable rate. A little further down Garfield Place is the Cincinnati Club, once a grand hotel and private club, now an event venue operated by Davis Catering. The Cincinnati Club offers an elegant site for weddings and all kinds of receptions and events. There are several different apartment buildings along Garfield Place offering Downtown living in a relatively quiet area.

Garfield Place has on-street parking at meters, but parking can be rather difficult and the meters aren't long ones. Garfield Place is a green oasis in the middle of the city, making it a pleasant place to eat lunch or just pass the time. With several apartment buildings on Garfield Place, it also offers a variety of convenient living options, although at a relatively high price. Garfield Place is a convenient location to live for those who work Downtown. It is near a number of dining and nightlife options, not too far from a variety of shopping and by the main branch of the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County.
