There is a golf course that would be of interest to the golfers. And, of course, in the summer there are the botanical gardens. Lots of places for a... More

It is great to walk through on a bright sunny day. Beautiful walk in nature. Playground for the kids. Weekly free concerts in the park on Thursdays in the summer.

Easy walk from the parking lot to the falls. We went in the winter. The frozen trees surrounding the falls made for a beautiful backdrop for pictures. There are several trails starting at around a mile, which is perfect for a hike with small children. Check with the park before you go, because there are guided hikes some days.

Went for a special exhibit called China Lights at Whitnall Park our Botanical Garden. Gorgeous display sure to please all ages. Milwaukee County is loosing it's great park reputation because of budget, but Whitnall Park is still as lovely as it was 50 years ago and to bring this wonderful exhibit makes you think they are trying to save it....

Keep an eye out for dear at dusk in Whitnall Park. My three year old twin grand nieces were so excited to see the doe and two fawns very close to the roadway near the children's play area. Unexpected treat!

Whitnall Park is a wonderful park, large enough in size to have something for everyone! Walking, picnicking, enjoying nature, learning about nature, play a round of golf and if you're lucky - visit while the traveling Beer Garden is there! A Great Park to enjoy anytime of year.

This huge local park is big enough to get lost in. I know, because I did, and I have been here literally dozens of times. Summer, Winter, it doesn't matter--there is something to do here, from Archery to Golf, to Tobogganing and more for all Seasons. There is also a lovely Botanical Garden, generous picnic areas, trails...you get the idea.... More

This park is huge. It was designed by the same man who built New York's Central Park. It contains botanical gardens, groves of different native trees, nature trails, a waterfall, and a nature center. There are activities year round for both children and adults.
