We really enjoyed the trail. It was well kept and wide to allow bikes and walkers to exist. It provides a perfect view of the lake and has great breezes off the lake. Its rather wide open and not a lot of shady areas (plant some more) but there were benches under trees to relieve the heat if necessary. There... More

Nice place to walk, stroll or run. We spent an evening there, the sunset and the cool wind plus the happy faces around. Independence weekend was crowded but not sure for other time of the year.

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
