This park includes an easy walking,jogging,biking path skirting the marina and Lake Michigan. The path weaves aroound the Milwaukee Art Museum, which looks like a massive sailing ship bearing down on the harbor, and around a small lake where paddle boats can be rented. It would be easy to spend a day here.

This is a wonderful park on the lakefront near a lot of stuff. We rented a bicycle-built-for-two and rode the bike path into town and had lunch. You can rent just about any mode of fun transport, including taking a Segway tour, but avoid the Surrey. That's a four-wheeled contraption with bench seats and pedals. We tried one of them out, and they look cute, but pedal hard.

We drove down to the lakeshore on Saturday afternoon, as it was the first really nice weekend here in Milwaukee. We found hundreds of other people who had exactly the same idea that we did. We ended up sharing the path with walkers, runners, dogs, roller-bladers, and tourists. The park is kept really clean, and there is plenty of parking and stuff for everyone to do. The kite store was the only vendor open, and there were plenty of families out trying to catch the wind with their new toys. We stayed about 2 hours, and walked about 2.5 miles on the paths. It's an excellent place to let the kids burn off some energy, enjoy the lakeshore, and really enjoy the sunny skies.
Remember that it's always a few degrees cooler down by the water, so bringing a jacket or blanket is always helpful.

When we first thought of moving to Milwaukee in 1999 my family came here and was very impressed. We have since been back many times for picnics and riding bikes on the lakeway.

Beautiful park right on Lake Michigan with lots of open space. This place holds wonderful memories for me especially as my fiance and I often picnic here, and on such an occasion last year, he proposed!
