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.

This is family friendly, clean, beautiful scenery, and it was very safe. As I woman, I was a bit reluctant to take my 3 children there by myself - however, we ALL had a lovely time. 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

Very beautiful area along Lake Michigan shore. Within short distance of museums, yacht club, beach etc. Beautiful in all seasons, went down this past February to see the large ice flows that were crashing in on the waves. Lots of parking too.
