UC to Rededicate Maurice Levine Park Sept. 24
Published September 2007
Smack-dab in the heart of one of the busiest and energetic parcels of real estate in Cincinnati—yet “far from the madding crowd” for thousands of faculty, staff and students who have sought strife-free refuge there for nearly 30 years, the Maurice Levine Park is back.
The new Levine Park will be rededicated at noon Monday, Sept. 24, during a ceremony to be attended by UC leadership.
A few steps east of the Medical Sciences Building (MSB) and in front of the Cardiovascular Center, the lawn and garden sanctuary with its little amphitheater honors Maurice Levine, MD, “an inspired humanitarian” who chaired the psychiatry department from 1947 until his death in 1971.
Levine was one of the first psychoanalytically trained psychiatrists in the country to be appointed as a department chair.
The park had been closed for three years for redesign during the ongoing MSB–CARE/ Crawley Building construction project. The original park opened June 9, 1979.
The rededication ceremony will be held in Levine Park. A reception will follow a brief presentation. All are invited to attend. For more information, call (513) 558-4553.
