Very well kept, gorgeous park. Lots of walking and riding paths along the water way and places to sit or play. Saw a lot of people with rentable bikes, scooters, and carts- it looked like a lot of fun!

Beautiful spot along Lake Michigan with walking and biking trails. Take a kite and the nice breeze off the lake. The park is conveniently located next to multiple museums and the summerfest grounds.

Nice park next to the lake. We just showed up and they had an annual kite festival going. Teenage boys loved it!

Good time to spend with family and friends as it is close to other MKE lake front attractions. Lots of events take place at this park.

Okay, the fact that you double back on the same path to complete a 5k here doesn't take anything away from the beautiful views, great weather, and fun times!
