The single most compelling quality of the nearly 20 square miles known as Indian Hill is its village atmosphere. With a population of around 6000 people, it's technically a city but its life style over the years has remained constant, that of a residential community which preserves the country atmosphere and the gifts nature has bestowed upon it.
The village is governed by an elected council and professional manager. It has public and private education. It has its own water supply, and exceptional police and fire protection. Its recreational facilities are varied and well patronized. It has its own service department for waste disposal and road maintenance. It has three churches, and boy scouts, girl scouts, and numerous cultural and garden clubs. The village has always had a green thumb, and an affinity for open space. This is manifested in the Green Areas program, which through purchase and gifts, has created an almost unbroken arc of greenery around and throughout the village. As a place to live, Indian Hill offers the most in privacy, and boundless natural beauty.
Indian Hill is about 20 to 25 minutes driving time to downtown Cincinnati. Expressways I-71, I-75 and I-275 are not far with easy access to Ronald Reagan Highway. Public bus service terminates at the village limits.
It is about 10 minutes drive to Jewish Hospital Kenwood. Bethesda North Hospital is in nearby Montgomery; it also has 24-hour emergency service.
Kenwood Towne Centre, offering 1,000,000 square feet of shopping pleasure, is only 5 minutes away. Presently this center is occupied by 95 specialty stores, 3 large department stores, and various restaurants, making this one of the larger shopping facilities in the state of Ohio. Also located in Kenwood is The Galleria, a uniquely designed center offering a wide variety of shopping, dining, and several other miscellaneous facilities.
Property known as the Village Green serves as a playground with four tennis courts, a basketball court and shelter house. A fishing lake behind the tennis courts is stocked periodically and, in winter, is used for ice skating. Three baseball diamonds support 300 boys in knothole baseball. There is a beautiful membership swimming club. The Camargo Country Club is private. Seven garden clubs help beautify the community.
