This is a lovely place to spend the afternoon or the day. the beach is small but nice. There is a lot of stairs to get down to the water, but it is worth it. There is a path way to walk if you can't do stairs. This is free to enjoy and the had out some porta potty's for people to use.

Was here Sunday morning for the sunrise. Not sure how crowded it gets later in the day, but it was mostly quiet and beautiful. There are a lot of stairs or a long ramp to get to the beach. There is a children's playground at the top and at the bottom. There's also a nice boardwalk at the bottom with benches to enjoy the view. Secluded and serene. Worth a stop to relax for a while.

if you just want to get away and walk or see a GREAT view then just try it once. Easy to get to and lots of free parking.

I've lived in Milwaukee for over three years now, and I feel as though I've been missing out by just discovering this hidden gem. I am not really a fan of Bradford Beach...too crowded and dirty...and looking at the lake but not wanting to swim in it is just depressing. Enter Atwater Park, one of my new favorite places in the city. Just a short drive north, Atwater is worth the trip. Beautiful, not crowded, and CLEAN. A wonderful beach with more families than hardcore day drinkers. The water is welcoming and there was plenty of room for us to set up our towels and picnic. We spent a fair amount of time in the lake and had a wonderful afternoon. I would highly recommend coming to Atwater Park. I can't wait to go back. Fair warning: the stairs to get down to the beach are pretty steep and quite the climb, so if you have small children or aren't a fan, you may find them to be a challenge. But they're definitely worth the hike.
