Lake Park offers lawn bowling, has a bike path, many places to sit and look out at Lake Michigan. It is a large park and has many things to offer. It's well kept and a very relaxing place to be. Also a perfect location to watch fireworks!

Many wonderful memories of times of carefree days on the Beaches spent lolling in the Sun and watching the crowds walk up and down the Lake Front!

Fantastic ~ beach-side fly-bys of the Blue Angels! Parking at the marina was well worth the $20 and the concessions were reasonable too.

I love the city parks in the Milwaukee area (I really miss this living in the LA area) and Lake Park never disappoints! Lake Park is always a great place to stop, relax and take in the views!

I always try to visit city parks, and Lake Park was not disappointing. For me it was a very personal visit since my parents grew up in Milwaukee. It was a treat to know that some of their favorite spots really hadn't changed much from their descriptions. We had beautiful weather and took advantage with a long stroll. Missed our... More

Lake Park is just down the street from my house so I go there every day that I can and it is a blessing in my life. Many travelers from all over the world walk through this park. It was designed by the same man who designed Central Park in New York City. There are wonderful ravines, many different venues,... More

I love Lake Park! It's huge, with plenty of open grassy areas, plus other things to do (a short-hole golf course, playground for kids, tennis, soccer fields, workout equipment scattered around the park). There are benches occasionally, and some really nice views of the lake and beach toward the south end. It runs right along the coast and acts as... More

The view here alone is worth a visit! The food is outstanding, service top notch! A perfect place to meet the girls or have a romantic dinner. Pretty expensive, so also a nice place for a celebration.
