About the Loveland Frog

The Loveland Frog, also referred to as the Loveland Frogman or Loveland Lizard, has been likened to Paul Bunyan. A tall tale — or is it? 

This friendly frog came to us from the Little Miami River, where its surprise sightings have made it a legend in Ohio folklore since 1955. 

Like a true Loveland resident, it loves the many adventures one can have around town. The frog is always up for a bike ride along the Little Miami Scenic Bike Trail, lounging at a Loveland park, or paddling down the river. Growing up in Loveland, the frog knows the best spots for outdoor adventures, food & drink, and one-of-a-kind shopping. The frog is often seen around town lovin’ life – Lovin’ Life Loveland, that is.
