“Beautiful Property”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

This is a park right down by the lakefront. It is beautiful and has a kite shop and a place you can rent paddle boats to go on the pond with. kites can be flying everywhere on any given day.

“Stunning!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

I love the lake front. The views are stunning. Very clean and very family friendly. The sailing center adds a touch of class to the backdrop of the skyline. The kite shop is a must visit for children and adults alike. Enjoy a senic stroll along the lake front that is approximately 2-3 miles of stunning beauty.

My kids loved walking along Lake Michigan. Great kite shop and bike rentals available. Views of the lake and marina were wonderful.

“I am so impressed with Milwaukee”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Lots of activity along the expanded parkway system on the lakefront. Walkers, bicycles, kites, sailboats and kayaks indicate the prolific use of this area. The Veteran's memorial was simple, and provided a good space to reflect on its purpose. Keep walking, and you see the lovely art museum and views of downtown buildings. Safe and clean.

“Skyline views of Lake Michigan”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

My wife and I spent a few hours walking though Veteran's Park during a recent day trip to Milwaukee. Grant Park in Chicago has more trees but Milwaukee did a great job with this park. This park is huge with many walking paths offering great views of downtown Milwaukee and of Lake Michigan. This park has places where you can rent a four-person bike, kites and jet skis. We were impressed with Veteran’s Park. If you're visiting Milwaukee, make time to enjoy the outdoors at this park!
