Triple Creek Kids Derby
On April 27, Triple Creek held the 2014 Kids Fishing Derby. Great Parks volunteers signed in more than 100 children to the event! These young anglers, from all over greater Cincinnati, showed up to test their skills in hooking the big one. Prior to the event, the Triple Creek pond was stocked with beautiful farm-raised channel catfish and hybrid bluegill raised by the Great Parks of Hamilton County’s very own Stewardship Department. Each child who caught a fish received a certificate to commemorate their catch along with a fish trophy to place on the mantel!
