A new green space is coming to the Cincinnati riverfront. Duke Energy is donating nearly a half million dollars over three years to add a garden to Smale Riverfront Park.

Spokesman Blair Schroeder says the plan is create a 'front porch' feel to the city.

"In addition to the lush gardens and large trees, you're going to have your walking paths, you're going to have granite sea walls and, of course, the park will also have large, oversized, family-sized porch swings that are suspended so visitors will have a front row seat to the scenery that passes along the Ohio River."
