Gilday Riverside Park

Cincinnati, Ohio 45204
Gilday Riverside Park is the location of the Bright + Early morning parking with shuttle, the Paddlefest take-out, and Finish Line Festival + Conservation Expo.
You reach Gilday Riverside Park by turning off River Road at the light onto Southside Avenue or at Idaho Street.
Idaho does cross a train track, so there is a slight chance of blockage. Southside bypasses the train.
Upon leaving Gilday Riverside Park, we ask that you exit out Southside Avenue to minimize congestion at the take-out.
