Lake Park is a gem. Designed by the renowned Daniel Olmstead (think Central Park NYC and Chicago Park's "Emerald Necklace" ) and enjoyed by thousands ever since. There is a lighthouse, the last remaining Indian Burial Mound in the Milwaukee area (the others were razed...More

We intended on having a picnic at the park but it wasn't very relaxing considering the hundreds of people playing Pokemon Go. This place must be a Poke stop. I don't know or play the game but it was quite disheartening to see hundreds of...More

Excellent playground for children ages 5-12. Balancing, spinning, climbing. Really different. And swings!

There's a nice little park up the hill overlooking the lake. Very close to Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro, which provides an excellent dining experience, as well.

Right on the lake front and if you pick the right hotel, just steps from your door. On the bluff above Lake Michigan, you will find various historical artifacts including a log cabin. As you walk down the hill, you will go by the Art...More

A terrific place to admire Lake Michigan, but few places to sit [other than the grass] while you admire, and no place for kids to play.

Great views and gardens. Nice paved walking and biking trails. There were ample places to park and get out and walk. Great view of Lake Michigan. A walk down one of the trails takes you past a very pretty light house.

It should be open to the public after a recent restoration. I think the public hours are on Saturdays and Sundays, from 1-4 p.m. which will get you inside to see the exhibits and climb the tower (for a fee). (There may be a... More
