Cincy Region sports and outdoor recreation

As the first professional baseball team in the country, tradition runs deep. There’s nothing more Cincy than spending an afternoon at Great American Ball Park, followed by fireworks to celebrate a Reds win.

During football season we wear our Bengal stripes with pride and pack Paycor Stadium. Who Dey!

FC Cincinnati, the newest professional team in the region, has brought soccer to our city in a big way. Every home match brings a sea of blue and orange to the brand-new TQL Stadium in Over-the-Rhine.

And – there’s so much more! The Cincinnati Cyclones hockey team takes to the ice every November, and the Florence Y’alls minor league baseball team reigns supreme in Florence, Kentucky. Every summer, fans can catch world-championship caliber tennis at the Western and Southern Open and can see their favorite golf pros at the LPGA Queen City Tournament.

Looking for outdoor pursuits? The Ohio River links several communities through the Ohio Riverway. Cincinnati Parks and the Great Parks of Hamilton County offer award-winning outdoor recreation, trails, and more. Crown Cincinnati is becoming Cincy's first-ever urban biking loop like the Little Miami scenic trail traverses many east-side communities.
