This park is not too far from the art museum and the downtown area of Milwaukee. It's right on the lake and affords gorgeous views of the lake. Lots of folks use it for walking and jogging.

This area is near the downtown area of Milwaukee. The place is large and there is plenty to do, so plan on spending some time here. The area has great views and is well maintained.

We walked around the lake, admired the Vietnam War Memorial and the MacArthur Statue, and saw ducks. You can also rent canoes and pedal boats, and fly a kite. There are boat cruises, a pier, and a marina nearby.

this was one of the places that the 115th Harley-Davidson Anniversary was held with bands and other fun things. It also has at the top a statue of Abraham Lincoln that is very cool

Very well kept, gorgeous park. Lots of walking and riding paths along the water way and places to sit or play. Saw a lot of people with rentable bikes, scooters, and carts- it looked like a lot of fun!
