I know – “Pyramid Hill” serves as a reminder to sing Blueberry Hill; thus, others are now fretting the appearance of Putin on the Ritz. Relax – not on this day because this post is about a local treasure that we recently discovered – meaning it was new to us.
Until last week, I never heard of Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park in Hamilton (a small city northwest of Cincinnati). A friend called and invited us to go with them to an art fair located on the park’s grounds, and then a few days later, I saw a post by a Cincinnati blogger about her visit. So, I went from not knowing about its existence to two mentions in a matter of days!
Remarkably, Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park is on private property while serving as an outdoor museum, thus it has an admission charge. Given 265 acres, sculptures, nature trails, and more – I imagine we’ll return. Plus, we’ve we have heard that they have a wonderful display of Christmas lights. Besides, we have more to see.
You asked for pics – and here they are – and from a nonphotographer.
