Minooka Park is the largest park in the Waukesha County Park System with a total of 579 acres. Minooka Park has a refreshingly tranquil atmosphere with trails that lead you farther from the city and further into nature. Most popular with the summer crowd is the swimming beach and pond. Enjoy a day at the beach or take a walk through the miles of wooded trails. Maybe you will catch a glimpse of the abundant spring ephemeral or variety of songbirds such as fly catchers or scarlet tanagers. See the scenic fall colors as stands of blazing deciduous hardwoods burst into their autumn reds, yellows and oranges. In winter, the park becomes an outdoor enthusiast’s frosty paradise with miles of groomed cross-country ski trails and a spacious sledding hill.
