"A pleasant surprise"

Robison Rd. in Kennedy Heights is divided into two sections, but unless you're headed there to visit a friend, you're not likely to travel either one. The section to the south of Woodford Rd. is nice and quiet. It's got homes that aren't exactly new, but they have a modern feel and reflect an obvious pride of ownership. The play area and baseball field at the entrance to the street let you know that families are welcome.

To get to the other section of Robison Rd, you must exit the street, make a left onto Woodford Rd., then make a quick right. You'll see a wooded area of Kennedy Heights Park on the right side and a few four family buildings on the other. It's literally uphill from there.

The street curves to the left then curves to the right and upward. Along the way you'll see mostly homes that are larger than on the other side of Robinson. The construction styles are more traditional than modern. These homes aren't new, but they are well maintained. Most have large, manicured yards and wooded lots. If you've never traveled this section of Robison Rd before, it will be a surprising find. Then the single single family buildings abruptly disappear. There you'll find more apartment buildings on both sides of the street before it ends at Montgomery Rd.

Shopping, Entertainment and Dining
Robison Rd is strictly residential, but there's lots to do nearby. You could go to Pleasant Ridge, Kenwood or downhill to Columbia Township for whatever you need, from coffee shops to comic book stores. Hyde Park and Oakley are pretty close as well.

There are two Cincinnati Public Schools nearby: Woodford Paideia is five minutes away: http://woodford.cps-k12.org/. Pleasant Ridge Montessori is close on Montgomery Rd: http://pridge.cps-k12.org/ . Nativity Catholic Elementary School is close on Ridge Rd: http://www.nativity-cincinnati.org/ .

Jewish Hospital Kenwood is a 10 minute drive away.
