CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The grand re-opening of a Downtown park will take place Tuesday afternoon after getting a $32 million dollar facelift.

Over the past year, 3CDC has worked to expand Zieglar Park into a 4.5 acre space between the Over-the-Rhine and Pendleton neighborhoods.

The park area includes a 230,000 gallon deep water pool, water features, basketball courts, and a running track.

The Ziegler Park Pool may eventually host paddleboarding classes and water aerobics. Swimming lessons and exercise classes are already on the agenda.

The cost to use the pool and facilities is $4 a day for adults, $2 a day for seniors and children.

Season passes are also available on a sliding scale according to income and family size.

The improvements and additions to the park also include an abundance of green space, a walking path, and a brand new 400-space parking garage.

Tuesday's grand re-opening will take place at 2pm on the west side of the Park, located west of Sycamore Street and north of 13th Street.

Parking is available at the new Ziegler Park Garage and on surrounding streets.
