Walking through Lake Park which is above a Drive which overlooks the lake is beautiful There is a great kids' playground and music on Monday nights in the summer. My favorite restaurant is located there.

Enjoyed our walk around this park. Great to see lots of people using the park for walking or jogging. From here we had a walk down to Milwaukee Bay.

I love that this park is near the lake but not so close that the traffic becomes a problem. I often see wedding party's there for pictures. It has a great bridge, lion statues (see photo) and a cool lighthouse.

Lake Park had a lot to offer. Whether it was taking a stroll along the paths, relaxing in the grass, taking pictures of some the scenery, the view of Lake Michigan and Bradford Beach was great. Nice place to stop and take in its surroundings.

Up at Bradford Beach, there is volleyball, a tiki bar, lots of room to be lazy and lounge, play with the dog and the kids. Fly a kite. Snack bars have been upgraded. There are more equipment rentals near the lagoon. Soccer and rugby fields. And it's the same great place to people watch. Alterra (now Colectivo) is across the... More

What a beautiful park designed by Fredrick Olmsted. There was a festive atmosphere with a small parade and children with decorated bikes and wagons. We toured the lighthouse and walked around the park and just enjoyed the beautiful scenery and homes overlooking Lake Michigan.

Lovely park which is kept fairly clean. I regularly play tennis there (with court reservations). When you reserve courts, you pay, but since these are well used courts, you are assured a court because you can kick off those who just were walk ons (which are most of the players). Many lights are out, and there are never any brooms... More

On the national register of historic places, this park has something for EVERYONE! It's surprising that so many of the reviews are about food when this is a park. Yes there is a wonderful bistro with food, but it's a glorious park first and foremost. So much work was done recently to update stairways, bridges, equipment, and facilities that is... More
