Every year Milwaukee celebrates the fourth of July with a big display of fireworks and Veterans Park is the place to be. Its very crowded so get there early

It is located by the War Memorial Building near the lakefront. Very senic and a good place to meet in the warmer months!

Oases of greenery in border of the marina. A place which calls it to a very big tranquillity. To walk by strolling according to the wind. His(her,its) closeness with Lake Michigan gives us an excellent idea of the size of this lake.

This park is clean, well- maintained, and fun. There is no limit to the fun you can have. Parking might be a bit dicey during warmer months, so plan ahead. It's a great place for families, couples, or just groups of friends. It's very near the Milwaukee Art Museum, which is also great. The water is clean, and parts of... More

I was just driving around on business attempting to get my bearings when I noticed a nice park in tucked right off the highway; it was just a nice calming surprise to enjoy while getting to know the area. This was my first time getting to see Lake Michigan and it was quite a view....though I did get back in... More

This is a gorgeous area in Milwaukee, and seemingly unknown as there's never a large amount of people here. I highly recommend stopping by the Gift of Wings Kite Store and picking up a kite, or bringing your own. Great place for picnics or just walking around as well.

This place is a nice little park and beach located in Milwaukee on Lake Michigan. The view of the lake is pretty.

Lots of steps up & down, but a nice walk with lots of interesting thing to see & do. Loaded with restaurants and shops. Fresh air along the water and friendly people.

Veteran’s Park is located directly east of downtown Milwaukee on Lake Michigan. It is also directly south of McKinley Park and the McKinley Marina. These two parks are connected and I was not exactly sure where one park ended and the other started. In addition, I am not sure why they consider these two separate smaller parks instead of one...
