Watch a German puppet show

Watch an authentic German mechanical puppet show in Goebel Park in Covington. The production happens every hour, on the hour—just keep your eyes on the historic Carroll Chimes Clock Tower. Also, this park has a unique approach to grounds maintenance: goats. That’s right. A crew of female goats grazes spring through fall to keep grass and weeds neatly trimmed. 501 Philadelphia St., Covington, covingtonky.gov
Play in Summit Park
Summit Park Blue Ash
Check out super-creative, innovative and huge play areas at Summit Park in the city of Blue Ash, about 20 minutes north of downtown. It’s one of the newest parks in the region—and a current local favorite. This park, still in development, has a great lawn and concert stage, and is home to a farmer’s market and a dog park. 4335 Glendale Milford Rd., Blue Ash, blueash.com/summitpark
