Nice beautiful park by the lake Michigan. In summer the park looks lovely with green all around. Lots of people come out to take a walk, bike or to just relax in this serene park.

Went here for a rugby tournament and was very impressed. Coming from Chicago, this park was such a joy...accessible, easy parking and literally right on the lake. Friendly people, and surrounded by beauty. Will go back to visit the museum.

Was visiting here from Kansas City and attended the Lakefront 7's Rugby tournament held in the park. the park was clean and it is an interesting area to walk around. Segways are available for rent at the park as are bicycles. Great place to watch sailboats coming and going.

Great lakefront park / lots of space and walking/biking trails. Good kite-flying spot. Easy parking at the kite store. (I don't know about the prices for kites, but the prices for Windsocks were extremely high --- $30 to $40. Yikes! Hungry? Drive north to Northpoint Custard - good burgers there! Right next to Bradford Beach. Try to go on off-hours... More

Come and visit this park, rest a bit and think of the many young people who gave their lives so you could do just that. Each day we lose a few more Veterans from all the wars... pray for us all that the wars will stop.

I went to this park while my girlfriend was attending a conference downtown. I stumbled upon it after my friend (who is from Milwaukee) told me to take the lake front drive. You should do that as well, beautiful overlooks and homes as well. The park is huge. There are a couple of monuments to veterans. One is very large... More

Located on the shore of Lake Michigan, next to the beautiful Calatrava-designed art museum, Veteran's Park is a great place to spend a lazy weekend afternoon, or a more active one. Kite-flying, biking, roller blading, jogging, walking and more are common activities done in the park.
