Pattison Park Lakeside Closure


Pattison Park Lakeside will be closed starting September 2nd for construction. At that time, work will begin on the sidewalks to be installed along the length of the parking lot. This will entail the removal of several feet asphalt along the edge of the parking lot creating a lack of parking and a fall hazard.

Recycling dumpsters will be moved to the other side of the parking lot. Access to the recycling dumpsters will be limited depending upon where things are in the construction progress. People looking for alternative place to drop off recycling can go to the site in the fairgrounds by the main gate.

This part of the construction should last through the end of September depending upon weather and construction progress.

Thanks for your cooperation and understanding!

Volunteers wanted for Ohio River Sweep on June 15


BATAVIA, Ohio – Clermont County-area volunteers are needed to help with the region’s portion of the 3,000-mile Ohio River Sweep litter cleanup, 9 a.m.-noon, June 15.

Local volunteers, please report to:

  • Chilo Lock #34 Park (adults or teens only)
  • Moscow boat ramp
  • Neville boat ramp
  • New Richmond riverfront bandstand
  • Indian Mound campground

Wear clothes that can get dirty and closed-toe shoes. Organizers will provide trash bags and a limited number of gloves. Each volunteer will receive a free T-shirt.

The Ohio River Sweep extends the entire length of the Ohio River and many of its tributaries. This important regional event addresses a global problem: litter in our waterways. It connects people to the Ohio River and encourages stewardship of this important resource.

“Rivers and streams provide 65 percent of our nation’s drinking water and 88 percent of Cincinnati’s drinking water,” said Penny Greenler, Clermont Country River Sweep coordinator. “By participating in the River Sweep cleanup effort with others in your community, you can help make your Ohio River a safer, healthier place for wildlife and people.”

Thousands of volunteers from Pittsburgh, Pa., to Cairo, Ill., will clean up the 3,000 miles of Ohio River shoreline. The cleanup involves more than 100 locations in six states. It’s coordinated by the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) and state environmental agencies.  See www.ohioriversweep.org for more information.
