Where is East Walnut Hills, exactly? Is it the area near Eden Park, or?

I checked out a couple places along Park Ave just north of Eden Park today and they were really gorgeous and affordable. Lots of people jogging with dogs and well-kept homes, kids all over, etc. It seems like a nice area, but I know Walnut Hills in general has awful crime stats. Is this mostly centered on certain pats of Walnut Hills? I know it's a huge neighborhood.

Any thoughts on the area just north of Eden Park are much appreciated

East Walnut Hills (EWH) is one of my favorite neighborhoods. I've walked through EWH and never had any problems. It seems to be pretty quiet and safe. EWH and Walnut Hills are consiered to be two seperate neighborhoods. The difference between the two is like night and day.

East Walnut Hills runs from North of the Park, to Madison and a few blocks Northwest of Madison, but it’s mostly East of Eden Park, it’s those woods on the other side of Mt. Adams if you drive East on Columbia Parkway.

It is everything south of Madison Ave beginning (where Martin Luther King turns into Madison) on the eastern side of Victory Parkway, (DeSales Business District) as well as a few blocks to the north of Madison (East of Victory Parkway and west of Owl’s nest park) to the it ends in the west once you enter the O’Brianville neighborhood, and Hyde Park to the east of that.

Everything to the south of Madison is East Walnut Hills until you get to Eden Park. The Northern side of the park near victory parkway is often called “no mans land” by East Walnut Hills residents.

I live in EWH on Upland Place 3-4 blocks from Walnut Hills proper behind St Ursula. Sure it's hooker / crack dealer / lock & load central 5-7 blocks from us (over in Walnut Hills proper / Peebles Corner), but our street / corner of the neighborhood is very safe and quiet.

The people are probably the best part of EWH. Everyone is very eclectic, diverse, generally friendly and happening crowd here. Some of my neighbors are Indian Hill Ex-Pats - they sold their tax heavy homes after their kids left for college - and all of them seem to really like living down here.

OK NO THE BEST PART OF EWH IS THE CONVENIENT LOCATION. We're literally minutes from everything in Cincinnati.
* 3 minutes from Mt Adams, Downtown, or Riverfront Kentucky.
* 5 minutes for safe, small-town late night grocery shopping in Hyde Park or even Bellvue Ky.
* 10-15 minutes from the best shopping anywhere in low tax KY via 471.
* 10-15 minutes from Rookwood & Kenwood Towne Centers and Norwood Lateral.

Default Park Ave/Walnut Hills

I recently bought a house on Park Ave. and can fill you in on some things...

1. The houses are gorgeous, affordable and mostly huge! Very attractive to a buyer.

2. The lower section of Park Ave. is made up of lots of lawyers offices, the aforementioned big houses and then condos as you go north.

3. Plenty of dogs, joggers and people on the street.

4. There is a church and a mission at the corner of Cross & Kemper which creates plenty of foot traffic on Park Ave. from the homeless and poor. That does not necessarily equal crime or undesirables. They are helping the community!

5. I love the neighborhood!

6. Having just said all that, I will tell you this past weekend, my car was very politely broken into and the stereo "professionally" removed from the dashboard.

7. Go north on Park to E. McMillan street, and you are in the ghetto.

From my research on the area prior to buying, it's a mixed neighborhood. They are trying to rejuvenate the area with more owner occupied houses...but there is still the fact that you can go one more block up and be in a pretty scary neighborhood. And I apparently live too close to that...

Good Luck!

You can view a map showing the boundaries on our website's home page. The website is www.RobinsonRealtors.com

Look at the column on the left, towards the bottom, you'll find a link titled, "East Walnut Hills" that takes you to an article on the history of East Walnut Hills, along with a map showing the neighborhood boundaries.
