Wetherington is a census-designated place (CDP) in West Chester Township, Butler County, Ohio, United States. The population was 1,302 at the 2010 census.


Wetherington is located in northeastern West Chester Township at 39°21′55″N 84°22′42″W / 39.36528°N 84.37833°W / 39.36528; -84.37833 (39.365356, -84.378229). It surrounds Wetherington Golf and Country Club and is bordered on its east side by Interstate 75, with access from Exit 22 (Tylersville Road). It is 22 miles (35 km) north of downtown Cincinnati.

Wetherington can be accessed from gated entrances at Cincinnati-Dayton and Tylersville Road, or through entrances at Liberty Way. The gates at the entrances were erected in 2002, making Wetherington the largest gated community in south-western Ohio at the time. This privatization was criticized for restricting public access to publicly funded roads, creating a physical boundary between lower and upper class citizens, and for symbolically being contrary to the free and democratic ideals of American society. The reason for the gates construction was to eliminate heavy traffic from commuters using the neighborhood's roads as a shortcut between Cincinnati-Dayton and Tylersville Road.
