Liked proximity to Lake Winnebago. Disliked the goose population. Was much cleaner in the 60's. The 60's displayed a great number of beautiful flowers and a variety of shrubs. Cleanliness and neatness was the byword.

One of the nicest places in Oshkosh. Lake view benches, great area for picnics, sailing on Mondays and Thursdays (from July till September).Kids friendly zoo, fishing, kayaking (bring your own) swimming (when the water is not green), larger wooden play park (the best in the area). Ample space for any lawn games. I think if you want to be closer... More

Beautiful and well kept zoo. The zoo is slowly but surely moving away from small temporary enclosures to nice size exhibits for their animals.

We enjoyed the opportunity to stroll, explore and relax. There is a sailing club in the area. We liked the nice monument of German revolutionary and American statesman Carl Schurz in the park. We did not linger in the zoo but spent time walking and enjoying the nature. A nice place to stop.

The park has a small zoo, a small beach area next to the lake and huge open spaces. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, they had mini-speed boat races. Not sure what the boats are called, but they were fast and it was neat to see for the first time.

Menominee Park and the zoo are a nice way to spend a few hours. The zoo is small, but you can see all the exhibits quickly and go on to the enormous children's play area.

It really is a nice park. On the lake, nice paths for jogging/biking, entertainment. But the goose poop really ruins a lot of that.

I have been going to the celebration of lights since I moved here 5 years ago. It is pretty cool to drive through but have noticed a decline in recent years, and they raised the price. Many of the lighting displays don't work properly, are missing lights, ect. They have some lights that are supposed to go along to music... More
