South 80 Trails and Community GardenTrail Map

Visit the Community Garden Facebook Page.

The South 80 acreage was donated to Mariemont in 1976.  75+ acres along the Little Miami River offer 7 miles of trails, community garden plots, a campsite and Little Miami river frontage.

Garden plots are available to residents and non-residents alike.
