This is a park right down by the lakefront. It is beautiful and has a kite shop and a place you can rent paddle boats to go on the pond with. kites can be flying everywhere on any given day.

I love the lake front. The views are stunning. Very clean and very family friendly. The sailing center adds a touch of class to the backdrop of the skyline. The kite shop is a must visit for children and adults alike. Enjoy a senic stroll along the lake front that is approximately 2-3 miles of stunning beauty.

My kids loved walking along Lake Michigan. Great kite shop and bike rentals available. Views of the lake and marina were wonderful.

Lots of activity along the expanded parkway system on the lakefront. Walkers, bicycles, kites, sailboats and kayaks indicate the prolific use of this area. The Veteran's memorial was simple, and provided a good space to reflect on its purpose. Keep walking, and you see the lovely art museum and views of downtown buildings. Safe and clean.

My wife and I spent a few hours walking though Veteran's Park during a recent day trip to Milwaukee. Grant Park in Chicago has more trees but Milwaukee did a great job with this park. This park is huge with many walking paths offering great views of downtown Milwaukee and of Lake Michigan. This park has places where you can... More

Nestled along milwaukee's Lake front is a veterans memorial only a few feet away from Lake Michigan - As we marveled at the beauty we payed respects to fallen service members that made the walk possible - we were humbled and speechless

The pathways were clean, the lake was not. The lake and city views were outstanding. Whether you want to see Lake Michigan or you are getting your daily exercise, this is the place to be.

Grab your bike, kite, picnic basket, ball and glove, football, etc . and make your way to the lakefront. We are so fortunate here to have so much free space to enjoy the beauty of nature and the awesome body of water - Lake Michigan. Just being there will lift your spirit.

This park includes an easy walking,jogging,biking path skirting the marina and Lake Michigan. The path weaves aroound the Milwaukee Art Museum, which looks like a massive sailing ship bearing down on the harbor, and around a small lake where paddle boats can be rented. It would be easy to spend a day here.
