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.

This is a wonderful park on the lakefront near a lot of stuff. We rented a bicycle-built-for-two and rode the bike path into town and had lunch. You can rent just about any mode of fun transport, including taking a Segway tour, but avoid the Surrey. That's a four-wheeled contraption with bench seats and pedals. We tried one of them... More

We drove down to the lakeshore on Saturday afternoon, as it was the first really nice weekend here in Milwaukee. We found hundreds of other people who had exactly the same idea that we did. We ended up sharing the path with walkers, runners, dogs, roller-bladers, and tourists. The park is kept really clean, and there is plenty of parking... More

When we first thought of moving to Milwaukee in 1999 my family came here and was very impressed. We have since been back many times for picnics and riding bikes on the lakeway.
