Greenhills began as a carefully planned "greenbelt" community based on the garden cities of England.
Despite growth over the years, most of the virgin forest and rolling meadows still remain. Yet, this well-planned model city still projects a great deal of its original charm.The warm, congenial atmosphere of Greenhills radiates from the center of this community, where schools, churches, shopping, a library and recreational facilities are conveniently located within walking distance of each home. The community is directly adjacent to Winton Woods Park which features horseback riding, boating, fishing, golf, camping, nature and fitness trails, plus much more.Well-kept neighborhoods offer everything from attractive single-family homes to pleasant multi-family dwellings. All are on beautiful tree-lined streets designed to offer safety for children. Many of the two-family houses are semi-detached, and the easy friendliness of neighbors makes them ideal starter homes.
Queen City Metro Bus service offers regular service mornings and evenings to downtown Cincinnati with infrequent service during the day. There is bus service to Tri-County Shopping Center. Within five minutes are highways I-75 and I-275, with connections to I-71, I-74 and Ronald Reagan Highway. It is about a 30-minute drive to downtown Cincinnati.
