"Cozy homes, industry and retail... all on one street"

As Marburg Ave., Hyde Park becomes Marburg Ave., Oakley, you may not even notice that you've moved into a different neighborhood. The homes along the street are pretty much the same. They are older, mostly small, a variety of differing styles and well maintained. Marburg intersects with Paxton, then angles off and eases uphill. Where it ends abruptly; but it doesn't stop there.

Marburg is one of those Cincinnati streets that was divided during area construction and modernization. Although the street ends, it continues on the other side of Madison Rd. That section of Marburg Ave. is all about industry and retail. Marburg also passes by Crossroads, a large, non denominational church that you might think is a sports arena at first glance. There are factories and Sam's Plaza, where you'll find Sam's Club, Target and several other stores.

In addition to Target and Sam's Club, there are lots of other shopping options. Where Marburg intersects with Madison Rd. it's the edge of Oakley's shopping district. The entire street is lined with boutiques, galleries and unique specialty stores. If you need more, Hyde Park and Rookwood shopping areas are minutes away.

Dining and Entertainment
There are several restaurants and cafes within walking distance on Madison Rd. There are more in the Hyde Park Plaza and Rookwood areas.

Marburg Ave is minutes away from Ault and Alms Parks. Geier Esplande, a green space in the middle of Madison Rd., is minutes away. For bowlers, there's Madison Bowl five minutes away.
