Fun family activity with 18 holes of pitch and putt golf close to town. Honor system to pay when unmanned. I heard you can play at night with glow in the dark balls but not sure its allowed. Drinks or a meal at Lake Park Bistro caps off a fun day.

The red light house marks the way into the Milwaukee harbor where you can see the hoan bridge. The view of Lake Michigan is priceless, the two hand cranked boxes tell you about the foxes and plants that live in this park.. This park is the start of two bicycle trails.. The Oak Leaf and the Hank Aaron bicycle trail...... More

Beautiful view and very good food. A little expensive but a wonderful atmosphere and a very lovely area to visit. Close to downtown.

Used to live two blocks from the upper part of the park. This place is awesome to run and walk through, and has some of the best views of the lake in the city. Bring a picnic or come to walk the dog. Oh, and in the summer you have direct access to Bradford Beach!

Expected a little more from this based on the reviews. Overall, it's a nicely done park. Wish the Northpoint Lighthouse had better visiting hours. Nice views overlooking Lake Michigan.

Nice place to go to stroll along the waterfront or relax on the grass or beach. we went during the week so it was not too crowded, traffic was not too bad either. Lovely day trip while visiting Milwaukee

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.
