Suburban Stonehenge



Suburbsn_0001

Beyond the manicured lawns and the sounds of lawn mowers and birds chirping, is Blue Ash's Sharonville's suburban stone henge. It's a concrete canvas for those who wish to paint swastikas, penises, ying-yangs and their names even over the works of the few who actually knew how to wield a spray can.

    1. ^It's in Blue Ash. No idea exactly what it's for. Seems like a spillway to slow down water, I guess?

  2. Yeah, was gonna guess it was a spillway. We have one for Winton Woods Lake minus the 2001 monoliths.

  3. It is a stormwater detention area that drains the area of Blue Ash around Reed Hartman Highway. The spillway is the emergency overflow and is designed to reduce erosion in the creek it drains to. After a good solid rain, or weather like we had April '11, it probably resembles a swamp for a couple of days while the water infiltrates and returns to the watertable without washing out most of Sharonville.

  5. This is not in Blue Ash. It's in Sharonville, on Creek road (near where it intersects at Sharondale).
