We decided to take an afternoon stroll down the river walk. The geese and ducks were napping. The weather was cool but comfortable. The nice thing about this park is you can walk as far as you want. It continues to downtown and the other side of the water.

I love running here. It's also a great place to drop the kayak in when the weather is warmer. It's a great little park that has trails in the woods or a paved trail that leads into the neighboring subdivision.

This park is close to my home so I frequently jog through it. You never know what wildlife you'll encounter -- deer, fox, turtles, salamanders... Good motivation to get off the couch and into nature.

Our family was looking for a low cost, outdoorsy place to visit! With the summer coming to an end, we wanted to take advantage of the beautiful weather. My wife, being from Waukesha County, suggested Fox River Park. I'm glad she did. The park is amazingly laid out with adequate parking and tons of activities for the kids! The highlight... More

Great park along the Fox River. Trails are well kept. Never crowded. We live close by and utilize the park often. Great place for families.

Each picnic area has a BBQ, fireplace area, tables, sand volleyball, childrens play area's, beautiful parking. It's a great place. It's situated in the back of the park and somewhat private. Great spots... More

The park has a nice bike trail. It has some hills but not too many. The area it goes through has some wooded areas and some prairie. The park also has nice facilities. It is a beautiful park

I sometimes bike to or walk in the park which has well maintained trails that are accessible for all seasons, riverfront, natural wooded and lowland areas and an imaginative children's play area near the group picnic sites. I've observed large birds, fox and other animals in the park.

First, there was no one there to tend the front and there is a $4 fee you have to leave in an envelope for your parking tag, and I didn't have small bills so I apologize to the person who receives my $4 in nickels and dimes. Haha! So take a little cash as there is a parking fee. We... More
