Located in the heart of Milwaukee along the Menomonee River between 27th and 37th Streets. 24 acres of newly created parkland, built atop an abandoned railyard. A spur of the Hank Aaron State Trail runs the length of the park, with connections to Mitchell Park on the east and the Oak Leaf Trail on the west.


Two miles of accessible biking and walking trails that become (ungroomed) cross-country ski trails in winter. River access for fishing, canoeing and kayaking.


There are no amenities in the park, but there are restrooms in the Menomonee Valley Branch of the Urban Ecology Center during its regular hours.


Access the park using the three pedestrian/bicycle bridges from Canal Street, 33rd Court and Mitchell Park or the Valley Passage from the Urban Ecology Center on Pierce Street.
