Milwaukee’s Top 5 Parks

Check out Milwaukee’s top 5 parks for exciting events, festivals, and markets, or simply spend some time in the sun (or shade)!

Cathedral Square Park

Walk out our front door, turn right towards Kilbourn Avenue, and walk two blocks East; you’ll find Cathedral Square Park on your right. Across from the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist, Cathedral Square Park is an urban green oasis in the heart of Downtown Milwaukee.
The park boasts free Wi-Fi and hosts events, markets, and festivals all year. There are many restaurants and bars nearby, and you can watch live music occasionally.
Let the kids burn their energy on the playground before kicking back and taking in the view of St. John Cathedral.

Museum Center Park

From Cathedral Square Park, walk South on Jackson Street for two blocks before turning left on Wisconsin Avenue and walking another three. You will pass the Betty Brin Children’s Museum and see “The Calling,” an orange sculpture by Mark di Suvero.
The park has plenty of green space to spread out; otherwise, you can people-watch from the central spot inside the brick patio.
Likewise, the Reiman Footbridge will take you to the Cudahy Gardens and Oak Leaf Trail.
