The Carillon neighborhood is a riverfront community bordered by S. Edwin C. Moses Boulevard, Cincinnati Street, and Washington Street. This neighborhood has quick access to freeways, downtown Dayton and the University of Dayton.
Carillon has a mixture of brick Cape Cod and frame houses primarily built in the 1940s to accommodate small and mid-size families. Many of the houses have porches for gathering, and comparatively large backyards.
Nature abounds in Carillon as the neighborhood incorporates pockets of greenspace, the Great Miami River, and the Great Miami River Recreational Trail. Welcome Park is in the southwest corner of the neighborhood and features a walking path, playground, and large mature trees.
The neighborhood is also home to numerous social service and county agencies, medical institutions, University of Dayton Arena, Dayton Bike Yard at Welcome Park (an international mountain bike park), and Welcome Stadium. The annual Carillon Picnic each summer gives residents an opportunity to connect and enjoy the neighborhood together.
Carillon is uniquely positioned near downtown and University of Dayton, making it convenient to access the amenities of these areas. Its proximity to the Great Miami River Recreational Trail makes this neighborhood ideal for those with an active lifestyle.
