Whether you're 2 or 92 you'll love this hidden gem on the Oak Leaf Trail hiding just below the Holton St. Bridge. Here you'll find a collection of swings just waiting to be swung on Milwaukee's Lower East Side. There are several traditional swings made of tires including baby swings and a swing for handicap folks. A unique and unforgettable place to recapture your childhood.

It’s a little swing park under a bridge. It’s pretty fun to stop and swing a few minutes. Definitely worth the stop for a bit of amusement.

As a week-end visitor to Milwaukee, I scoured visitor guides for attractions and things to see and do which were off the beaten track, and was intrigued by the glowing reviews of The Swing Park. With the swings hung from the underside of a heavily used bridge, it was a wonderfully innovative use of space, but the traffic above made the park louder than I would have liked. And while there were several styles of swings, there was - sadly - a decided paucity in the number of swings.

The biggest reason I would give this park two thumbs up is the artwork I encountered less than a block away. "The Brady Street Beasts" are eccentric, wacky, large, and wonderful. It is absolutely worth a visit to The Swing Park in order to encounter these large size examples of sheet metal public art.

This is a small place below the bridge where there are few swings. Mostly used by locals and don't think it is worth going there unless you live around vicinity of this place

Fun little place for a quick stop. Bridge to the river walk for a nice walk! Free street parking across the street is a bonus!

My daughter was looking for a different vibe for her senior pictures. Apparently she had seen too many previews of classmate photos in the park or a farmers field. She said she wanted edgy, industrial and old. We found plenty of backdrops to get some great shots as well as opportunities for outtakes that showed off her personality. We were there on a Saturday morning from 9 to 10 and didn’t have any issues with waiting for people to cross the bridge or get out of our shot. Lots of interesting backgrounds as well!

Are you an adult who misses enjoying the swings because now all the swings are too small? Same. If you are, you'll love this park! A sandy expanse under the bridge at the end of Brady Street, full of adult-sized, fun swings. Great for a photo shoot or for swinging!

It's especially worth visiting if you're going to be around Brady Street anyway—especially if you're on your way to Lakefront Brewery, which is right on the other side of the bridge.

We found this place by searching for free things to do in Milwaukee. What a great surprise to find just off of Brady street. Many swings under a bridge atop a nice soft sandlot. Very loud with the traffic b
ut the kids didn't even notice. They want to go back again and again!

We went here on an odd nice day in November. There are about 6-7 swings for bigger kids and 2 for babies.

Our 6 year old LOVED it because it was different. There was construction going on next to the park. So it was kind of loud but overall nice.

Maybe add some different swings, a bench swing would have been fun....
