  • Park Description
    Located in the Town of Waukesha on the river which shares its name, Fox River Park is full of mature woodlands, wetlands, and many species of wild flowers. You’ll feel like you’re in the northern woods of Wisconsin without leaving Waukesha County. The 257-acre park represents an outstanding area for providing a feeling of wilderness and solitude. No matter what time of the year, the view and activity is ever-changing: spring brings delicate wildflowers; summer produces a wooded canopy for a hike through the forest; fall offers a breathtaking display of color, and winter donates snow that glistens in the sun. The abundance of wildlife provides great opportunities for nature study and the exploration of the natural world. Many wildflowers and bird species can be viewed along the trails that wind through the park. The miles of paved trails draw hikers, bikers, and rollerbladers throughout the summer to offer a variety of trail experiences.
