Meet at Fishing Dock Along Western Path Park staff will supply poles and bait for up to 20 children as we fish for panfish. Children younger than 16 do not require a fishing license.

Dogs are welcome at our public events, as long as they are in compliance with the park rule of being on a leash no longer than 8’ in length. As a reminder to all visitors, no alcohol is allowed in the park (with the exception of on-site purchase of beer at the Urban Island Beach Party). It is typically more windy and cool by the lake during our events, so please dress accordingly.

Free parking is available at the south entrance by following Erie St to the park access road along the Milwaukee Harbor and behind Summerfest’s American Family Amphitheater. Limited 3-hour free parking is available along N Harbor Drive and Clybourn St near Discovery World (portions of this may be closed during festival dates). Paid parking is available at the O’Donnell parking structure on Michigan St.
