RiversEdge Amphitheater at Marcum Park

The RiversEdge project represents a unique brownfield redevelopment opportunity on the 7.3 acre vacant site of the former Sisters of Mercy Hospital, which operated on the site for 109 years, from 1892 to 2001.

The RiversEdge Amphitheater Project is located in Marcum Park along the City of Hamilton’s beautiful riverfront, nestled between downtown and the German Village Historic District. RiversEdge is a riverfront public park that offers a vibrant urban location for outdoor recreation, live entertainment and an enhanced view of the river. For rental rates call the Hamilton Parks Conservancy at (513) 785-7055.
