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...

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.

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.

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
