About this location
Established in 1921, the Cincinnati–Blue Ash airfield was one of the first in operation in the United States, and it became Ohio’s first municipal airport when Cincinnati purchased it in 1946. For decades, it was eyed as a potential future site for Cincinnati’s primary commercial airport, spurring construction of Cross County Highway, but efforts to develop the site repeatedly failed.
In the 1970s, much of the property around the airfield was converted into an industrial park and golf course. Cincinnati eventually sold about half of the remaining airfield to the City of Blue Ash and permanently closed the facility on August 29, 2012, despite local efforts to keep it operational.
In 2017, Cincinnati sold the remaining land and runway to Al. Neyer, which is building a mixed-use development on the site, part of which is The Approach at Summit Park; home of the third Sugar N’ Spice Diner.
