One of the few remaining Indian Mounds in this part of the State
Jun 2020
There is a Native American Mound in this park, of which few people take interest. However, that's an important historic and cultural feature. The mound is in decent shape, even though it's being run over by tractors for mowing purposes all the time. Wisconsin Archeological Society Plaque sits on top of the mound - that's the best way to spot it if you don't know where it is.

Par 3 Golf, Boccie Ball
Aug 2019
Stay up top and play. The par 3 golf course is great or stay and play boccie with the locals. You can't beat a lazy summer Sunday afternoon at Lake Park.

Stunningly beautiful park
Sep 2019
I went primarily to see the North Point Lighthouse but was really impressed with the overall beauty of this historic park. Amazing trails and paths. Nestled in a neighborhood bristling with vintage mansions and estates.

Better Than Paris
Nov 2019 • Business
There’s a reason this restaurant has won a James Beard Award

As good or better than the best bistros of Paris, and my wife and I have lived in Paris for years

Send in the people from Michelin

It's a park, not a restaurant
Aug 2019
Lake Park is an urban park covering 138 acres located on the shore of Lake Michigan in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It is part of a stretch of lakefront amenities that extend north from downtown Milwaukee and includes Bradford Beach, McKinley Marina, Milwaukee Art Museum, various parks and the North Point Lighthouse, which was built in 1855. It also is home to the last remaining Indian mound in the city. And an 18-hole golf course. Lake Park was designed in the late 19th century by Frederick Law Olmstead, who also designed Central Park in New York City. He designed Lake Park in the Romantic tradition with a preference for natural landscaping, winding paths, a variety of vistas, wildlife and a balance between active recreation and passive enjoyment. The park was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.

Previously good restaurant that has gone downhill
Mar 2019 • Friends
We had reservations for Valentine's Day. After we were not seated 90 minutes later, we left and decided to cook a romantic dinner at home. Six weeks later we thought we would give the restaurant another try and made a Sunday brunch reservation with friends. This time we again had to wait a long time. Finally we were seated after a 45 minute wait. The food we had was mediocre and certainly not what I would have expected from a high-end restaurant.. After we left, I got a notice from my credit card company asking me if I wanted to leave a 100% tip. Apparently someone at the restaurant had entered in a tip that was exactly 100% of our bill. I called the restaurant and told them that I had originally intended to leave a 25% tip. They said that they would have someone in customer relations, email me with a reply about my concerns. No one ever emailed me. However they did refund the overpayment. Lake Park bistro is a restaurant in the Bartolotta group.I have eaten at several of the Bartolotta restaurants over the years. and the food has generally been good. But for some reason Lake Park Bistro has had its share of problems, and has not left up to the quality of both cuisine and service that I would've expected from a Bartolotta restaurant. It makes me think twice about patronizing any Bartolotta restaurant again. it was aggravating having to wait an inordinate amount of time only to receive mediocre cuisine that was overpriced and to have to go through the hassle of getting a refund on the tip that was overcharged at 100% of the cost of the meal. To top it off although I was promised an email of apology, no one followed through.

Beautiful park

Amazing views of Lake Michigan! Lovely park with places for picnics or walking. Views of the lake are really great as there's a bluff in the park.

Lake Park has a small golf pitch and putt course, miles of trails with a few ravines and access to the Lake Michigan beaches. Great for a casual walk, exercise or sitting and people watching.
