"Tiny Terrace Park Offers Quiet, Country-like Living"

The Village of Terrace Park is a quiet suburb of Cincinnati located along the US Route 50/Wooster Pike corridor. Its 1.2 square miles is nestled at the base of Indian Hill, just past the community of Mariemont along the banks of the Little Miami River. Terrace Park is closely allied with Mariemont, as it is part of the Mariemont School District.

Terrace Park has a number of smaller, mid-20th century homes on good sized lots. These homes are priced on the lower end of the scale for area housing prices. As Terrace Park is a desirable community to live in, this means the smaller, older homes are being snapped up and torn down in favor of larger, more modern homes; so, infill in this community is quite common. There are also many newer and larger homes in Terrace Park, so you can find a home for under $200K or well over a million dollars.

Children living in Terrace Park will attend Terrace Park Elementary, but education is continued at Mariemont Junior High and Mariemont High School, both located in nearby Mariemont. The Mariemont School District is rated as "Excellent with Distinction," the top rating achievable in the state. The Mariemont schools perform highly and their performance index in 2010 placed them 8th in the state out of 600 school districts.

There are only a handful of business in Terrace Park, mainly located along one section of Wooster Pike around Elm Avenue. There is a bank, a gas station, a convenience store/ice cream shop, dentist, insurance agencies, a gift/flower shop, and a post office among others. You will need to head down Wooster Pike to the Mariemont Kroger or to the Kroger in nearby Milford to do your grocery shopping.

The mainly residential community of Terrace Park offers quiet, country-like living within easy driving distance of Downtown Cincinnati. Terrace Park is also located on the bus line and there is even an express service for morning and afternoon commuting times.
