  • Great scenery along the lake! my favorite place for cardio (run/walk). It is great for biking too. The views indeed are spectacular.  more »
  • In summer unfortunately with the ever-present mosquito repellent / mosquito theme, i.e. a relaxed stroll is possible during this time of year only with mosquito Defense (so in the summer and in still air the bug spray do not forget). Otherwise: small park offering a Lakeside walk or to settle on one of the numerous benches. There are sufficient parking facilities - free can be parked in Erie Street in direction East (if no major events at the Festival take place).

  • Wonderful outdoors area in the middle of the city!
  • Fantastic views of the city and wide, winding sidewalks that meander through the park. The park is a great scenic route connecting downtown to the Summerfest grounds. You can see some great sunsets behind the city skyline from here!
  • This place is beautiful and I have been taking my son on morning walks before summer camp at discovery world! Great way to spend some time with nature in milwaukee!
  • Very picturesque. If could silence the highway would be a 5. Definitely worth it to visit.
  • Very nice shoreline trail, just east of the festival grounds, on reclaimed land. The park connects to the lakefront via a bridge on the north end. There is some parking at the south end. The trail loops around, with a beach, prairie land and revetments on view. The skyline views are quite good. There are minimal seating areas. A nice getaway feel right in downtown Milwaukee.

Where to stay in Milwaukee

Staying in the city center puts you right in the heart of the activity, and means you can take advantage of all the things to do in Milwaukee’s walkable downtown area. Options here include big chain hotels as well as quirky inns. Party animals should sacrifice some sleep to stay close to Milwaukee’s lively bar scene, centered around Water Street. Those who want a little more rest should consider a scenic resort in the greater Milwaukee area; many of these are within easy driving distance of the main attractions.
