We went on a Sunday when it was least crowded & it was really an awesome place. Tons of tributes to all branches of the military as well as major wars. The open area is on the Lakefront & is incredibly large.

There's a bit of something for everyone from biking, rollerblading, walking, paddleboats, kite flying, etc.

This was nice and quiet the day that we visited. The memorial to the Veterans is done with bricks engraved with numerous names. We enjoyed reading the information and quietly remembering all they gave for our country. The location is nice by Lakeshore Park and the water. You can access it by walking, car, bicycle etc.

First note, watch out for goose droppings. Second note, watch out for bikes going too fast. Otherwise this is a great walk along the lake to get some fresh air and take in the sights.

The park looks like it would be quite busy during the day, but we were there late evening, so it wasn't as busy. But it looks like there are some fun activities during the day. It does offer a nice stroll along the lake with some nice views. Would definitely recommend.

A really nice and beautiful lakeside park. Right off of downtown, it has lots of great open space, water features, paths and benches and trails.

This is a great, centrally located green space in downtown Milwaukee. There are often planned events happening there which are always wonderful to witness!

The combination of scenery of the waterfront, marina, skyline and park is very nice. Lots of options for bicycles, kayaks and kite flying. Good ice cream and lots of walking/riding paths along the waterfront. Really nice quiet spot just off downtown.

We get to the area a few times a year. In warmer weather they have different events going on. Take your lunch and picnic there with family. You can buy kites of many sizes. The view of Downtown Milwaukee is amazing n beautiful. Plus it's another place by Lake Michigan that us Milwaukee residents love.

Beautiful views of downtown and Lake Michigan. I was here on business and stopped here to sight see. Beautiful, some areas could be cleaner, but this could also be due to the fact that I was there right after Summerfest.
