We drove down to the lakeshore on Saturday afternoon, as it was the first really nice weekend here in Milwaukee. We found hundreds of other people who had exactly the same idea that we did. We ended up sharing the path with walkers, runners, dogs, roller-bladers, and tourists. The park is kept really clean, and there is plenty of parking and stuff for everyone to do. The kite store was the only vendor open, and there were plenty of families out trying to catch the wind with their new toys. We stayed about 2 hours, and walked about 2.5 miles on the paths. It's an excellent place to let the kids burn off some energy, enjoy the lakeshore, and really enjoy the sunny skies.
Remember that it's always a few degrees cooler down by the water, so bringing a jacket or blanket is always helpful.
