Visit Three Bridges Park

 Now open for biking, fishing, kayaking, commuting and more!

On Saturday, July 20th, "Three Bridges Park" opened to the public with a dedication and family celebration. Three Bridges Park is the largest new park developed in Milwaukee in decades and marks the continued transformation of the Menomonee Valley - a former, long-abandoned rail yard - into an asset for families, children, fishers, hikers, bikers, boaters, businesses and employees of the area.

Three Bridges Park features:

  • two miles of accessible biking and walking trails
  • river access for fishing and canoeing
  • as well as three new bike/pedestrian bridges providing access to residents and workers to the new park and jobs in the Valley
