Bridgetown is located in Green Township and is named after Bridgeton, New Jersey, the home of early settlers from 1820. Since the early part of this century, Bridgetown has developed from farmland of rolling fields and green pastures into a busy, active community, but still retaining a casual lifestyle. There are 14,000 residents in the area.
Branching off main thoroughfares are lovely neighborhoods of tree-lined streets and well-built homes. Soon after World War II, development began in earnest and has continued steadily. Cape Cod designs, ranch styles and custom colonials are plentiful. Recent development has introduced contemporary construction, well suited to the terrain of the area.
Queen City Metro Bus service operates seven days a week to and from the downtown area, with “express” service during peak periods. A choice of several access routes to the downtown area by car makes the trip only 20-25 minutes.
Mercy Hospital - West is located within five minutes of Bridgetown. There are several other fine Cincinnati hospitals located with 20-25 minutes including University Hospital, Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Christ Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital.
At the edge of Bridgetown is the Western Hills Shopping Mall and Glenway Crossing. Western Village is directly across on Glenway Avenue. There are major department stores, supermarkets, a variety of shops marketing a multitude of products and services, and branches of many major banking institutions.
There are five golf courses in the area: Neumann, Woodland and Hillview are public courses while Miamiview and Western Hills are private country clubs. The Aston Oaks golf course offers beautiful views of the Ohio River. Kuligia Park features three tennis courts, six baseball diamonds and facilities for picnicking. Two bowling lanes provide 80 lanes for leagues of all ages. In nearby Westwood, the Gamble Nippert “Y” offers membership at a nominal fee and provides instructional and recreational programs, including three outdoor and one indoor swimming pools. Active Knothole and CYO sport programs are available for both boys and girls.
