Meet Devou

Welcome to Devou Park, where friends, families and neighbors come to connect and explore in the hills overlooking Covington and Cincinnati. With more than 700 acres of lush landscape, Devou provides plenty of space for relaxation, discovery and creation. Our community is built on inclusiveness, and we believe everyone has an opportunity to enhance the world around us simply by coming together and sharing what makes us special.

No matter how you prefer to relax and recharge, you’ll find plenty of options to keep you engaged and enjoying all the park has to offer. This includes an 18-hole golf course, multiple playgrounds and picnic shelters, more than eight miles of mountain bike trails, an amphitheater, a fishing lake, and paved and nature trails, just to name a few.

The park is also home to Drees Pavilion at the Devou Memorial Overlook, the Behringer-Crawford Museum and Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky, which contribute to the richness of the park experience. We cherish the stories that are shaped here, and we hope you find Devou to be a place that inspires you to enrich your own.

Because our history spans more than 100 years, there is a palpable wisdom and welcoming nature rooted in the authenticity of our heritage. In a generous donation, the Devou family gifted their farm to the City of Covington so that future generations might enjoy the land’s untold promise. We hope you’ll sense the spirit of generosity and grace that permeates the park as it draws you in and makes you feel at home.

We encourage you to join us and experience the wonders of Devou Park for yourself. Whether you’re seeking something familiar or yearning for a new experience, you’ll be joining a community of other like-minded visitors who are eager to share in the park’s endless possibilities.
