Check out Milwaukee County’s COVID-19 restrictions and precautions here.

1. Falk Park

2013 W. RAWSON AVE. 

Located right near 1-94 heading south, Falk Park in Oak Creek is easy to miss. But the 200 acres of the park include easily walkable trials and some winding creeks. Falk Park is also a popular spot for dog walkers. 

2. Greene Park

4235 S. LIPTON AVE. 

This St. Francis park is the perfect spot for a socially distanced picnic because of its large, open area. Greene Park also has a children’s play area and several baseball diamonds. 

3. Three Bridges Park 

610 S. 35TH ST.

Head over to this abandoned industrial area turned picturesque park and enjoy a moment of peace located in the middle of the city. 

4. Grant Park 


If three bridges aren’t enough for you, check out the Seven Bridges trail located within Grant Park. The trail winds through the ravine with several footbridges and Lannon stone staircases. 

5. Lake Park Waterfall 

2975 N. LAKE PARK RD. 

Although Lake Park is a well-traveled to park, head down the steep steps located at the park and enjoy the Lake Park Waterfall, the highest waterfall in southeastern Wisconsin at over 30 feet.
