Updated: Scheduled 'Spring Thaw' Closures: Dog Exercise Areas; Mountain Bike Trails
Updated Tuesday, March 24 • 9:30 am: To prevent damage to soft turf, Waukesha County Parks temporarily closes some high-traffic areas. Each area is reviewed daily for re-opening at the first possibility (ie. once the frost is out of the ground and turf firms up).
For updates, check here often and follow us on Twitter. Thank you!

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.
