Published:

CINCINNATI (AP) -- Plans for a riverfront park in downtown Cincinnati have gotten a big boost.

The Procter & Gamble Co. is giving $1 million toward the park that will stretch from Great American Ball Park to Paul Brown Stadium once it's completed.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/TwuQv3 ) the money will go toward a series of outdoor play areas.

City leaders hope the park revitalizes Cincinnati's downtown.

Already open are a bike and visitor center, an outdoor stage and a microbrewery.
