The fundamental question is: Does the park offer access to the Ohio River? By definition we are examining parks that are located on the [north] bank of the Ohio River. But even if they are located on the bank, some parks provide no access to the river. We use a broad definition of “access:” it includes both visual and physical access. Can a person see the river, either sitting on a bench facing the river (benches facing in other directions don’t count) or sitting in their car or truck in a parking space that faces the river? (Again, parking spaces that face some other direction do not qualify.) Can a person get on or in the river? Can they eat its foods, or drink its water?
