What is Gilmore Ponds?

Nearly hidden by an industrial park and an airport, Gilmore Ponds Interpretive Preserve provides over 200 acres of marsh, ponds, and other wetland wildlife habitat. This wildlife oasis lies entirely within the boundaries of the city of Hamilton Ohio, just north of Cincinnati. Each spring and fall the ponds teem with migratory waterfowl and songbirds. White-tailed deer frequent the area, along with red-tailed hawks, great blue heron, woodcock, red fox, raccoons, mink, weasels, leopard frogs, painted turtles, and many other mammals, reptiles and amphibians. Gilmore Ponds is one of just a few sites in Greater Cincinnati that hosts breeding wetland birds.
