One of Cincinnati's oldest communities was built on a terrace overlooking the Little Miami River.
Through the years it has retained an air of history with ancient trees that line its streets and neighborhoods that resemble an old-fashioned New England village. Terrace Park has a delightfully different kind of suburban life. Although the colonial style homes are relatively new, they have charm and character. Streets are interestingly named for famous colleges. Plus, many of the residents have been deeply rooted in the community through second and third generations. The feeling of quality and culture that abounds everywhere is one of the reasons there is a deep sense of village pride in Terrace Park. For old world charm with New England flavor, this is an unusually satisfying place to live.
Cincinnati buses furnish regular service between Terrace Park and downtown Cincinnati. Highway U.S. 50 (Columbia Parkway) is the main auto route south to downtown Cincinnati with good roads leading west to Cincinnati's outlying suburbs. Driving time to downtown is approximately 20 minutes. I-275 is approximately 10 minutes away giving easy access to I-71, I-75 and Ronald Reagan Highway.
Interstate I-275 provides 10-12 minutes driving time to Bethesda North Hospital in Montgomery and to Clermont Mercy Hospital located in Batavia. All other Cincinnati hospitals are about 30 minutes away.

Mariemont's retail stores and shops are only about five minutes from the village offering small specialty shops and a variety of restaurants.
