Climbed the Lighthouse--lovely view. Great flowers after all their rain. Just a pleasant way to spend a few hours.

I'm a local so I've been here numerous times. Most recently was for a work outing. It is also a great place to take wedding photos. The wooden bridges, lake, trees and flowers, and the lighthouse all make excellent backdrops for photos. Its a nice place to have a picnic with family and friends. Shelters and picnic tables are available.

This is a large park for the size of the city. At the East end is a marina, and just east of it are workout stations and picnic tables. At the west end of marina is a lighthouse. It is relatively small, but fun for kids and family to climb up and look out at Lake Winnebago or watch the boats come in and go out from. Heading west of the lighthouse there are multiple covered areas and, I believe, some pavilions. Fishing can be done from piers or off the rocks in almost any part of the park. There are a couple of foot bridges and beautiful plantings throughout the park. At the West end there are gazebos, a covered bridge, a fountain, a train ride, merry-go-round, petting zoo, jungle gyms, and peddle boats and canoes are available to rent by the hr. It is beautiful for walking or riding the bike through. It is a 5 for the size of the city.

We went here for the evening as we were in the Fond du Lac area. The park is right on the lake and it has a very nice walking path. My favorite part was the lighthouse. The park also continues inland with nice fountains, bridges, and even some rides. It is a free park and worth a trip if you are in the area.

A great place to go for a long walk and take in the scenery. Quaint bridges around water and fountains, picturesque shore line of lake Winnebago and the pelicans, and fun views from top of the lighthouse. The deer enclosure was a fun place to stop for a moment too - my little one loved that they came right up to her. The park area was clean and had lots to do for kids of all ages and was grateful there was a fairly clean bathroom close by for the little ones. Hope next time there are animals in the petting zoo area, the train rides and merry-go-round, and maybe the boat rentals are open too.
