The Club at Harper's Point encompasses the essentials for wellness and entertainment, including tennis courts, a fitness center, and a pool exclusively for adults. The tennis courts span both indoor and outdoor acreage, with 10 sheltered courts sporting a cushy DecoTurf that gently buoys balls, feet, and dropped crystal vases. Outside, 11 HarTru Sports soft courts host rapid-fire matches and classes or camps for all ages amid shaded gazebos. In the fitness center, certified personal trainers whip bodies into shape atop Cybex and Hammer strength equipment, as well as treadmills and ellipticals equipped with TVs. The fitness staff also captains exercise classes including spinning, aerobics, and yoga to chisel physiques and wake muscles from their winter hibernation. Visitors can wind down from workouts at the pool.

There's something for everyone at Court Yard Sportsplex, keeping families busy and active with its variety of sports facilities and classes. Tennis balls thwack against rackets during private lessons, instructional clinics, and competitive inter-club matches at the complex's 11 indoor and outdoor courts. Elsewhere, cardio and weightlifting machines whir with the effort of exercisers, and the squeak of tennis shoes echoes upon basketball and racquetball courts. Outside in the heated pool—open Memorial Day through Labor Day—younger kids splash in the shallow end during beginners swim lessons, and older kids sluice through the water while working on their strokes. For the more artistically inclined, music emanates from classrooms where a Joffrey Ballet–trained instructor orchestrates youth ballet classes, which culminate in a summer recital. Whatever activity they choose, members can soothe exerted muscles by visiting the onsite massage therapist, who calls upon nine massage modalities and essential oils infused with lullabies.

When you think of Cincinnati, you might not imagine live palm trees, white ocean sands, and tumbling waterfalls, but all of those sights can be found throughout The Beach's water park. With more than 40 different slides and attractions intended for guests of all ages and interests, the park provides entire days' worth of sun-soaked leisure and excitement. Here are a handful of the available attractions:


Water Slides

  • Big Kahuna: This water slide plunges riders through 500 feet of fast-paced twists, turns, and drops, and a final drop down one last hill into a pool.
  • The Cliff: Five stories. Three seconds. That's the power of gravity, which makes this slide the closest thing to a controlled free fall in the entire water park.
  • Hang Ten: This completely enclosed slide sends guests on a blind ride through the twists and turns with only the occasional bit of starbursts before the final splashdown.
  • Click here to see even more thrill rides.


    Sites to Relax

    • Kokomo Lazy River: Inner tubes float with a gentle current along this 1,200-foot loop, which winds throughout the park and gives visitors a chance to enjoy the sunshine as well as the views.
    • Paradise Cove: Sculpted rock formations, verdant palm trees, and soothing waterfalls surround the cove's central pool, which is heated to 80 degrees. There's always the option to simply sunbathe on one of the lounge chairs.
    • Rental Cabanas: Accommodating up to eight people, these shady cabanas provide an ideal base camp for groups looking to duck out of the heat for a bit.

      Group Activities

      • High Tide Hoops: Families or small groups can perfect their slam dunks and fadeaway jump shots in this shallow pool's basketball court.
      • Big Surf Wave Pool: Recreating the vibe of a tropical beach, this wave pool routinely sends 750,000 gallons of heated water careening toward the shore—spectators can safely watch from the shade of a cozy cabana.
      • Sand Volleyball: Returning to the land, guest can take to the sandy volleyball courts to dry off and practice their bumping, setting, and spiking skills.

Mechanized towers stand along the shoreline of Wake Nation Cincinnati's 10-acre lake, steering riders across the water as they grip cables rather than lines attached to boats. Cruising clockwise from the cables, up to seven people at a time can wakeboard, water ski, kneeboard, or waterskate around the aquatic arena at speeds of up to 20 miles per hour. Wake Nation designed the main lake for everyone from beginners to elite-level riders, and peppered it with manmade obstacles and floating jumps, allowing boarders to zip along and pull off tricks that sometimes aren’t possible behind a boat. They also have a smaller practice lake for beginners and young riders from 5 years old and up.

Experienced staff members observe boarders at all times, supplying safety tips, training, and navigational advice for circumventing Poseidon’s rose bushes. Visitors can bring their own equipment, or rent or buy necessary gear from Wake Nation’s pro shop. A cast of instructors lead lessons and observe riders during freestyle riding, fun summer camps, and special events such as birthday parties.
