Springdale is a bedroom community within the Northern section of Cincinnati. Within Cincinnati, the East & West is always contested. The dividing line has always been known to be Vine Street, which this far north is called Rt 4, which is a major road within the thoroughfare of Springdale.
The area has been the location of a retail center- TriCounty Mall since 1959, it is adjacent to the historic GE aircraft engine facility in neighboring Evendale and is the location of many buisinesses in the Greater Cincinnati region.
Springdale is a self governed municipality with its own police and fire departments, its own maintanence department, etc. The City services are very good because of this amount of control from these departments. The community has a world class Community Center which has focused programming for seniors, youth and all in-between. A great amenity for residents!
Residents demographic information from www.city-data.com shows that the median household income is trending within $500 annual to the Ohio average at $47,575.
After enjoying my run through the neighborhood, I can attest that the housing stock is very well maintained. Most homes are built in the housing boom of 1960. They are typically 3-4 bedrooms, homes on slab foundation and generally well cared for.
The school district is Princeton Schools and has an elementary school within the community.
As for running, I enjoyed a 3 mile loop, which could be extended if I braved more commercially overrun roads. Routes to the north are cut off by the Interstate 275, but if you go about a mile West, you will have great running within Winton Woods area.
I enjoyed a run through Ross Park Woods which is a neighborhood park with a soccer field, baseball field, playground, parking area and a major surprise– frisbee golf! There is a drainage creek that it seems as though locals fish the stream, or kids use it to play as it has some worn paths to the banks.
