Hill With A View

Here I, Sweet William The Scot, am visiting Ault Park.
This park is the fourth-largest park in Cincinnati at 223.949 acres.
 It lies in the Mount Lookout neighborhood on the city's east side.
The hilltop park has an overlook which commands extensive panoramic views of the Little Miami River valley
Cincinnati is made up of seven hills with valleys.
This hill is the next hill over from my hill.
The park sports a soccer field, playground, and an impressive flower garden.
I am walking into the center of the park to show you some panoramic views
 At the center of the park is a large Pavilion, built in 1930 in the Italian Renaissance-style
The water cascading  down sounds wonderful.
  The Pavilion is used frequently for dances, parties and weddings.
There is a wedding setting up today so I cannot go into the open pavilion.
During the Summer months the park also hosts a Summer concert series and an Annual Dance Night.
I got to climb these steps to the top. 
Presidential Candidate Barack Obama spoke to a crowd of approximately 15,000 people from atop the historic Ault Park Pavilion where I am now.
Look at the view from here.
The soccer field is so green and there is a game being played.
This view is looking toward Mt. Auburn another one of the seven hills.
Now here is a view looking over to my hill, Mt. Washington.  See the arrow that is the Mt. Washington Water Tower which I have showed you up close.  I live in the shadow of the water tower.
In the valley sits my free dog park and Lunken Airport.
Every one of the seven hills have a wonderful view. 
Would you believe this is only six miles from my home.  The hills make everything look further away.
Well I hope you enjoyed seeing Ault Park and another view of my Nati City.
Now Lee and I are going to eat our lunch.
Thanks for being a friend
Traveling down the road and back again
Your heart is true and your a friend of mine
