Located in Springfield Township, Ohio, the "Farms" (as it is known by residents) was first announced on March 14, 1965 in the Cincinnati Enquirer as the site for the fifth annual HOMERAMA. At the time, it was the largest subdivision ever approved by the Hamilton County Regional Planning Committee. The $40 million community of 670 acres we developed by the Hammond Corporation. Then on May 5, 1967 an Open House was held by Crest to showcase the proposed additional 100 homes..
This neighborhood has always been close-knit and family-oriented. The Pleasant Run Farms Civic Association, founded in 1969 and run entirely by volunteers, sponsors many activities and events. There's the annual Easter Egg Hunt, Youth/Teen/Adult pool parties, and the 4th of July Parade. Past events included family picnic at Strickers Grove, organized Nature Hikes, Santa visits, Christmas Luminaria and Hayrides. The Athletic Association keeps area youth active with SAY, and Lollipop Soccer; Baseball, Softball, and T-Ball; Basketball; and every summer the Swim Team splashes away at the PRF Swim Club. Many of the adults get together to enjoy recreational activities like bowling, sand volleyball, and softball.
The Pleasant Run Farms community is now and has always been a great place to live!
