Excellent newer bike or walking trail in a park area behind Summerfest. Continues in front of Discovery World, then behind the Art Museum then over to the veterans area where they rent kites and bikes. Well done. Lots of people there during daylight.

Running on this path offers great views of Milwaukee and Lake Michigan. You get to run from the east side to downtown Milwaukee. Overall a great place for a jog.

Veteran's Park, just north of there features bike rentals, pedal cars, food, restrooms, pavilions, a marina is nearby. Some families have major picnics here,... More
