The day was sultry. Warm enough to crowd the beach on a mid-week afternoon. I’d been to the park before but I hadn’t taken the trail that circles around the lake, which is what I did this time. In addition to the lovely scenery I discovered that this is a very popular park even beyond the beach. It draws a remarkable diverse clientele, of all ages, too.
Fox Brook is a Waukesha County Park located on Barker Road just south of Capitol Drive in Brookfield. Although it is 223 acres, most of the park is comprised of wetlands, which are preserved and protected as a natural habitat and open space. The remaining portion, including the 25-acre lake, is clearly well loved!
I didn’t see any wildlife while I was at the park, except for a few small birds. However, on my way to and from there I was very lucky to come across these lovely creatures.
