"A nice quiet place to call home"

Centennial Dr. is within the physical boundaries of Madisonville, but it's not exactly a part the rest of the community. It's one of three private streets within Centennial Station, a gated apartment community at the western edge of the Madisonville and the eastern edges of Hyde Park and Oakley. Centennial Dr. begins at Old Red Bank Road and runs uphill, past the complex's service areas, mail boxes, basketball court and the apartment buildings at the rear. To gain access to Centennial Dr. entrance, you'll need a security remote to open the gate.

Centennial Station is easy to spot if you're traveling along Erie Ave. or Red Bank Expressway. It's the large cluster of neat, white and gray buildings on the hill just above the Red Bank Expressway business district. The community is perfect if you desire security, peace, quiet and all the amenities that renters prefer. It's the perfect place if you prefer a homogeneous community. My parents lived there for several years and it wasn't hard to miss that they were a minority when it came to ethnic diversity among the residents.

Shopping, Dining and Entertainment
The Red Bank Expressway business district is a short downhill drive, although there's not much there for shoppers. Walmart on Red Bank is very close and Banasch's fabrics is a little further south from there. Oakley, Hyde Park Plaza and Hyde Park Square shopping areas are less than 10 minutes away. There are neighborhood cafes, bars and great restaurants in these areas as well. You'll find a variety of fast food outlets along Red Bank Expressway.

Fitness and Recreation
There is a pool, basketball court and a party mansion... yes a small, old, well-kept mansion... on the Centennial Station premises. They have a pool table and party facilities for special events. Bikram Yoga Studio: http://www.cincinnatibikramyoga.com/schedule.html and Cincinnati Barbell Club: http://www.powerliftingwatch.com/gyms/ohio/cincinnati-barbell-club are down the hill on Red Bank Expressway and Madison Bowl is 5 minutes away on Madison Rd. Madisonville has several parks and a Recreation Center in Stewart Park.

There are several Cincinnati Public Magnet schools nearby in Hyde Park. Seven Hills Schools private Hillsdale Campus is 5 minutes away on the section of Old Red Bank that's on the North side of Madison Rd. The Goddard School for early childhood education is a few feet away from Centennial Dr.

Christ Hospital has an emergency facility on Red Bank Expressway and Jewish Hospital is a 10 minute drive away. If you prefer public transportation, Metro bus route drop passengers off at the Erie entrance of Centennial Station.
  • It's a great place to live if you want peace and quiet
  • Easy access to I-71 and Columbia Parkway
