Fowler Lake is a beautiful small lake in Oconomowoc. On one side of the lake there is a wonderful boardwalk along the back side of Wisconsin Avenue. It is easily accessible from downtown providing beautiful views and access to many shops and restaurants.In November the German Christmas Market is held adjacent to the Boardwalk.

It's a lovely 2-mile walk around Fowler Lake. There's a playground in Fowler Park and the sunets are beautiful from there. In Summers there are weekly water ski shows and monthly Moonlite Movies.
