“Beautiful Spring Day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

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.

“Refreshing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

When we first thought of moving to Milwaukee in 1999 my family came here and was very impressed. We have since been back many times for picnics and riding bikes on the lakeway.

“Was proposed to here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

Beautiful park right on Lake Michigan with lots of open space. This place holds wonderful memories for me especially as my fiance and I often picnic here, and on such an occasion last year, he proposed!

“A Great City Get-away”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Only minutes from downtown Milwaukee, you'll feel like you aren't even in the BIG city. With great views of Lake Michigan and downtown Milwaukee, my family and I come regularly for family picnics.
We only wish that the regular bathrooms would be open/fixed as we don't like the port-a-potties.

“turd central park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

i could do without the goose turds but you can't escape the turds in most Milwaukee Parks.... there's a pond so whaddya gonna do? Seen some awesome sights. Giant kites and usually there are rentals of many types. It was also a great venue for Rock the Green which I went to in Sept. Great for a walk/run!
