    Love coming out here with the family! Plenty of room to run around with a dog to chase a ball, lots of trails to bike and walk along, great views of the lake and downtown area, it's just an awesome place to be outside. The kite shop is a gem too. You don't see places like that anymore, and it's awesome for picking up a kite or other fun outdoor activity to take advantage of the lake breeze and time outside. Come back at the end of your day and grab a snack or some ice cream from the shop. Haven't done the bike, cart or boat rentals, but they're always busy and a great way to explore the park.

    Great place to rest after biking the Oak Leaf trail. I was happy the nice restroom was open for summer hours, the sail boats were floating picturesque and birds were peacefully sailing over head. Nice!

    Great spot in Milwaukee to have a picnic, go for a walk or run along the lakefront, or even fly some kites. There are places to rent bikes, for single person use, and four-seaters. Also a great monumental spot, to honor veterans. Very clean, and great views. Good spot to visit on any day.

    Went to this park for the Color Vibe a few weeks ago! It is a beautiful location with lots of things to do. They offered paddle boating among other fun activities that did not cost an arm and a leg to partake in!

    Decent open space with fishing opportunities. Traffic is a bit high and make sure you lock your car... Pond paddle boats for rent if tou feel the urge...

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.
