The heat is on and summer is in full swing with many wonderful events going on around Milwaukee. Looking for a place to chill? It’s cooler by the lake, and our beautiful state park is surrounded by water!
There are many ways to cool off at the park. You can check out one of them in our feature article this month by volunteer Diane Bacha.
We have 14 events scheduled at the park this month, several available as bilingual, listed here on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/LakeshoreStateParkMKE/events/. One is our first ever food truck event to be held inside the park on July 10th, the day after Summerfest winds down. Along with great food there will be live music and family-activities to help keep the party going.
These many park events are made possible thanks to the hard work of the Wisconsin DNR staff. Park supervisor Angela Vickio oversees our park as well as Havenwoods State Forest and Hank Aaron State Trail. She’s introducing our new park manager Elaine Zautke. Stop and say hi to Elaine and the DNR staff when you see them at the park.
So come out to the park, enjoy the summer sun and one or more of our free events – happy Fourth of July everyone!
President, Friends of Lakeshore State Park
