I attend the Oconomowoc Art Fair nearly every year with friends. Not only is this one of the best art fairs in the area, the setting is outstanding on Fowler Lake. Playground for kids; flush toilets; grandstand for bands and musicians and poetry readings; well-groomed grounds; fresh breeze off the lake...and of course, plenty of room for a nice long stroll among many booths with interesting and beautiful artwork.

There is a wonderful playground for kids to play on but make sure to watch the little ones. The lake is right down a small but very steep hill and there is no warning such as a sign or a fence- curious little ones could easuly tumble down the hill and into the water. Every August the Art Festival is held at this park and it is lovely. One of the most beautiful back drops you can imagine. This lake is small enough to walk around in about an hour and there is sidewalk all the way around. We often take our dog around and it's not uncommon to meet friends along the walk. I never get tired of the view.

This lake is convenient but really small, really weedy, fishing is average at best. Yes there are big game fish in there but not enough to write home about. The pan fish are dinks and not worth fishing for. For boating forget it. Way too small to really enjoy. Perfect for a canoe or paddle boat.

Nice shoreline for swimming in Fowler Park. Fishing is ok for younger children. Personally have had many wonderful outings here!

Community favorite for walking. 1.75 miles around. Right downtown. Many restaurants/bars for a refreshment or bite to eat. Coffee shop and two bars bordering the lake frequently have music in early evening.
