A new trail in Lincoln Park, connects us to Milwaukee River Greenway trails to the South. We hope you will join us for a CELEBRATION. We joined forces with Friends of Estabrook Park, Cream City Conservation Corp, River Revitalization Foundation and Milwaukee County Parks to build this beautiful new hiking trail. The trail goes under three roadways, Port Washington Rd, I-43 and the Hampton Ave on-ramp, The trail continues along the Milwaukee River and emerges from the woods next to the Hampton Avenue bridge across the river from the Blatz Pavilion. Here is a blog article describing the trail and it's creation. In true Friends of Lincoln Park fashion, we invite you to CELEBRATE with us.
