In 2006, the City of Blue Ash introduced and then passed a levee initiative to fund parks, greenspace and recreation enhancements for targeted projects within the community. Funds generated by the levee were used to acquire 130-acres of the former Blue Ash Municipal Airport, expand the City’s regionally-renowned recreation complex, and construct the Cooper Creek Event Center at Blue Ash Golf Course. The 228-acre Blue Ash Airport Site was the city’s largest remaining undeveloped open space and the last remaining portion of a 1,200-acre tract of land which greatly influenced the city’s formation, growth and development.
In 2012, the City completed a schematic master plan and phased implementation strategy for the creation of a world-class regional park on the Former Airport lands. The $45,000,000 park development – now known as Summit Park – has spurred a renaissance in investment throughout the City.
