  • Quintessential Midwest park. When you come visit, you think you'll have died and woken up in Pleasantville heaven. Nice park with play ground (equipped with painted witch boot slide), a free zoo, and a beach with swimming. The lakes freeze over and open for ice skating in the winter. Fun activity after seeing flamingos in January!
  • I live a couple of block from my alltime favorite park. Many good memories from my college days way back. Lake Wingra has deteriorated in quality over the years due to runoff but the park itself is very pleasant.
  • Beautiful park with something for everyone: a beach, tennis courts, soccer fields, and a beautiful water piece.
  • Good park. Lots of goose poop.
  • A very nice park to family activities, walking, jogging, etc. There is also a nice zoo in the park.
