Whitnall Park is such a landmark area. So much beauty and wildlife. The park offers skiing, gardens, golf, sledding, hiking, archery too. Well taken care of gardens.

The pro shop guys really should have stepped up here. We were a foursome with carts and granted while reduced rates, they never told us their greens were an aerated mess and they still refused a stupid, token $5 coupon for each player as it wasn't after 2pm yet. Really? What a waste of time but we tried to make... More

I enjoy wandering around this Park taking pictures of flowers in season (peonies are great right now, tulips were awesome (see pics). Fun to see wedding parties on Saturdays too. I was recently there with a friend and her 2 year old. We went wherever the child led us… on the wooden bog walk, into the roses, down the hill,... More

Has some great, well kept hiking trails. Trails on the North side prairie are fairly dry in spite of the spring rains. Wooded trails closer to the lake can be muddy in spring but are beautiful. Park has a large playground and picnic areas as well. Great Nature Center that has monthly programs and activities (Wher Nature Center).

I love fishing. now I checked with Wisconsin DNR and found out that I was able to fish there. after an hour drive there and paid for parking(which at this point I feel as though they essentially stole from me), I cast my...

We've come here before for dog sledding, and sledding in winter. Park at the larger lot near the clubhouse/warming house at the golf course. The summer is great at the playground and for a picnic. I love seeing the waterfall after a good rain because then it pours over the rocks and is very scenic. To find the falls, there... More

Love the fact that this park is free to all. You can pay for other things like golf and tobaggoning but I love to just grab the dog and follow trails through the woods. I have loved this place since I was little. The playground has been updated in area 5 so little ones can enjoy. Try it out. This... More

Decided to head over for an early morning run and was promptly told not allowed to run on the trails, it might scare the birds, really? People hiking and kids won't?

This is a "must see"! Whitnall Park was built by the federal government during the Great Depression. The nearby Village of Greendale was also a Recovery Project during the depression. These shining examples of government investment are a reminder of what can be done by politicians when they are responsible to the voters.
