There is no lack of awesome parks for kids in the Milwaukee area. Here are 6 that we especially enjoy visiting with our kids:
3920 N. Murray Ave.
This park is right by Lake Michigan, offering visitors both fun in the sand as well as fun on the playground equipment. There is also information about a shipwreck just off the coast.
911 W. Brown St.
Minutes from downtown and right off the highway, this playground features several slides, picnic shelters, a kiddie pool, a baseball diamond and soccer field in addition to the several play structures.
7300 W. Chestnut St.
Located along the Menomonee River, this park features a giant play structure, sandbox with hidden dinosaur fossils, a sprayscape and smaller play sets. A new pavilion is under construction and will provide picnic tables, bathrooms and shade. Visitors can stroll the Oak Leaf Trail, following the river to the Village of Wauwatosa.
700 S. Main St.
Certainly a regional attraction, this park is accessible and safe for kids of all abilities. Features include a rock wall, rope climber, monkey bars, swings, glider, spinner, swaying hammock, pretend boats and more.
Several play areas and a giant hill to run up and roll down makes this a great park! And when it's hot out, the sprayground is the best place to cool off.
1500 E. Riverside Place
The playground along Oakland Avenue is just the start of the fun at this park. Race on the track of Riverside University High School, stroll the trails along the Milwaukee River and visit the Urban Ecology Center to see the snakes and turtles and ride down the waterfall slide.
