Noyes Park in Milwaukee
Located in the northwest corner of the City of Milwaukee. A major portion of the park is given over to a nine-hole beginners’ golf course of short fairways, along with a driving range. The western third of the park—a little over 22 acres—is maintained as a “nature study area.” A Parks Dept. ecological restoration project has cleared large sections of the understory of buckthorn and other invasive species, leaving a lovely and historic remnant beech forest intermingled with white and red oak, sugar maple, and basswood. A hiking trail, a stop on Milwaukee County’s Forked Aster Trail system, winds through the forest and around a small pond.
Spring or fall, this park provides numerous opportunities to see a variety of migratory bird species. Identified by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology eBird.org program as a birding hotspot.
