Approximately 2 miles long and a mile wide, Sayler Park is as far west as you can travel and still be in Cincinnati. First settled in the early 1800s as Home City, this unassuming riverside neighborhood was incorporated in 1879. Its name changed to Sayler Park, honoring Nelson Sayler, the village’s first mayor, when it was annexed into the city of Cincinnati in 1911. Sayler Park sits curvaceously on the Ohio River, 10.5 miles west of downtown—about the same distance Mariemont lies to the east. Sayler Park is a close-knit, genteel Midwestern town that works undercover as a city neighborhood. City trash cans and recycling bins and a public elementary school give clues that you’re in Cincinnati. Dotted with Victorian-era frame houses and brick ranches on rolling hills, more than half a dozen parks and recreation centers, and hidden walking steps, Sayler Park makes for a relaxing half-day getaway.
