The City of Fort Mitchell has undergone a renovation to it’s eight acre park, named for the town’s namesake, General Ormsby MacKnight Mitchel.

(General Mitchel is known for designing several forts that defended Cincinnati during the Civil War, but prior to his military service in the Union Army, he was a well-renowned astronomer who also founded the Cincinnati Observatory.)

The whole park renovation includes added parking, improved grading and walking paths, revamped playing fields and courts, and several new buildings: a new pavilion with restrooms, storage and covered seating; a maintenance garage; and two dugouts.

The pavilion is perched on the edge of a hill, at the center of the parking area, playground, volleyball and tennis courts, and overlooking the improved baseball and soccer fields, walking path, and amphitheater. The sculptured blue ceiling rises out towards the hill, acting as a beacon for the athletes and families enjoying the park. This ceiling with its sprinkling of lights is a nod to the advances in American astronomy made by this community’s namesake.
