Ice Rink Update

The temperatures haven’t felt much like January, and the beautiful snow of December has almost melted away. As a result, our efforts to get the Lake Park ice rink prepared to open have been negated by the unseasonable weather. We will hope for colder weather and more precipitation in the form of snow in the weeks to come. If we get our wish, we will get the rink open for as long as the weather permits. Keep your skates sharpened and watch for progress near the Warming House, if conditions become favorable.

Our Lake Park Projects

We have the good fortune of having a fabulous Frederick Law Olmsted historic landmark park in our back yard. Preserving it and enhancing its beauty and usefulness for all our enjoyment requires the work of many people, but most importantly it requires financial support from our community members.

The Park’s Full of Rich History

What do Lake Park and New York’s Central Park have in common?

Frederick Law Olmsted was the leading landscape architect of the second half of the 19th century, and the architect of Lake Park in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Olmsted is perhaps best known for the design and creation of Central Park in New York and the U.S. Capitol grounds in Washington, D.C.
