The well-established village of Lockland offers charming, modest homes and a sense of hometown community.
Historically, Lockland is an industrial community due to its location along the Miami-Erie Canal, which remained operational until 1929. This canal was replaced by Interstate 75. Lockland celebrated its 150th anniversary in 1999 and installed a clock tower and memorial plaza for this special occasion. Its name is from the first set of lock gates found on the Miami and Erie Canal – a part of the transportation route from New Orleans to New York City.
Lockland’s central location along I-75 provides quick access to I-71, I-74 and I-275 and is one of its greatest business and industrial assets. Driving time to downtown is 15 minutes.
Bethesda North Hospital – a Level One Trauma Center – is a 10-minute drive away, with well-used emergency room facilities. Jewish Hospital Kenwood is also located within 10 minutes drive time and is located on Kenwood Road in Sycamore Township. This hospital features a state-of-the-art patient tower as well as a 24-hour emergency department. It also offers the region’s only adult Blood & Marrow Transplant Center.
Other Cincinnati area hospitals, such as The Christ Hospital, Good Samaritan Hospital, University Hospital and the Children’s Hospital Medical Center are located within a 25-minute drive.
Lockland has many smaller businesses including restaurants and shops. Tri County Mall and Kenwood Towne Centre are both a 10-minute drive, offering hundreds of national brand stores.
Lockland residents enjoy six parks, including Gardner Park, which features soccer fields, basketball court, sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits and a paved walking trail. The Veterans Memorial is located by the area’s bandstand. The community’s recreational department offers youth baseball and basketball leagues. There are many seasonal activities for all ages as well.
