About The Area and Surrounding Locations
Columbia Township is a self-described “Inland Archipelago” (Remember grade school geography? An island group or chain separated by body of water.) Except in this case, it is a group of nine neighborhoods surrounded by a “sea of municipalities.” Woodland Vistas is located adjacent to Madeira – the city line is in the street behind us – and is very close to Indian Hill, Mariemont and Kenwood. Stay with us….now the good stuff:
Woodland Vista homeowners will enjoy the thriving Kenwood and Madeira business districts with traditional businesses, great dining choices, exciting entertainment venues and unmatched convenience to expressways and downtown. Hamilton County Sheriff’s department regularly patrols the area and Columbia Township has its own maintenance department that takes excellent year round care of the roads. New residents also enjoy an added bonus: no local earnings tax or property taxes!
