This neighborhood is also bordered by the Stillwater and Great Miami Rivers to the east and south respectively. Architectural styles vary in DeWeese, ranging from Tudor to ranch, cottage to Cape Cod, and even some contemporary styles.

The DeWeese neighborhood features robust amenities for residents to enjoy year-round. A heavily wooded part of the city, DeWeese contains a series of parks strung together along the Stillwater Recreation Trail. Wegerzyn MetroPark, part of the Five Rivers MetroParks system, offers hiking trails, formal gardens, and a Children’s Discovery Garden. Also situated in the neighborhood is the Dayton Playhouse, Boonshoft Museum of Discovery, and the Jim Nichols Tennis Center.

DeWeese neighbors have plenty of options to get involved in their community through annual garage sales, the DeWeese Ridgecrest Youth Ambassadors Program, Bike N Brew, Art in the Garden Affaire, and other annual events.

Mature trees, hilly land, and proximity to two rivers make it the ideal location for residents seeking a more private, natural environment.
