Waukesha County Park System has six beautiful parks that offer swimming beaches - ranging from small spring-fed ponds to Nagawicka Lake!

We provide both beaches with Lifeguard On Duty hours and Swim At Your Own Risk hours. 


Lifeguard Staffed Hours:

Lifeguard Staffed Hours at Fox Brook Park and Menomonee Park beaches will end in early August. As our staff availability continues to change during this evolving situation, please note that our offerings and procedures may change at any time. We will do our best to keep Lifeguard Staffed Hours for as long as we are able. Please monitor this webpage for changing status and dates.
