Description

The Milwaukee County Parks Department acquired 200 acres in 1980, 70 more acres in 2004, with the end result being Kohl Park, the newest park in the system. There is a friends group associated with the 270-acre park as well as the Granville Business Improvement District, both organizations are interested in supporting the protection of green space and recreational opportunities within the park.



The location of the park is also significant because there is a several hundred-acre nature preserve located directly across the road in Ozaukee County and one nature trail connects the two parcels. Next year a multiple use paved trail will connect the two properties offering access to bicyclists and other trail users. Our long-term plans include a segment of the 108-mile Oak Leaf Trail making connections to the area neighborhoods and the multi-use trail.
