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 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.

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...

My husband and I rented Bikes and rode all the way from the South entrance by the Festival grounds up along the Lake to Brady Street. It was a Sunday and there were people walking their dogs, pushing their children in strollers, and skating. It was a very nice ride thru native habitat.

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.
