Such a beautiful park, hidden in the city! I went to run the trails to get a break from the roads/sidewalks. I had to run quite a few loops but was able to knock out 11 miles here. Its a very easy trail, technically-speaking. Very peaceful!

Nice trails for a park hidden in the city. Dogs not allowed in most areas, which was a bit disappointing to learn after arriving. The areas we could go were along a service path, so we weren't able to enjoy as much of the natural setting as we had hoped for, but it was still nice.

A good city stroll when you need some fresh air.

This is an amazing trail if you live in the area. There is not too much that is spectacular about it, but it does have a nice lake and a hidden waterfall if you can find it. Enjoy the friendly deer population here as well!

Expanding the outdoor classroom used by Urban Ecology Center educators. Increasing diversity of native plant species that provide a source of seed stock for the region and provide a better habitat for native wildlife. Improving water quality and reducing storm water runoff by replacing invasive species with deep-rooted native species. Increasing opportunities for ecological research in a unique urban environment. Increasing community access to the Milwaukee River with a path accessible to those with limited mobility and families with strollers.
