Here in Northeastern Wisconsin we live amongst an abundance of beauty! With this weekly series “Wisconsin Parks Near Me” we take the opportunity to highlight our community parks we share. We have so many parks we narrowed our focused to a selection along the waterways we paddle (and we still can’t feature them all!). So check out this week’s park details featured below – pack your gear, fill up the picnic basket, don’t forget your hammock or fishing pole.
Address: 290 Lakeshore Avenue, Neenah, WI
Size: 3.5 Acres
Description: In 1929, the land that is now Kimberly Point Park was donated to the city of Neenah park system by Helen Kimberly Stuart. Her brother donated the money for a lighthouse to be built in the park in 1945 — this lighthouse is now both a state and national Historic Place. It looks over 830 feet of shoreline that sits at the confluence of the Fox River and Lake Winnebago. Fishing is allowed off the lighthouse deck, or picnic tables are scattered amongst outdoor grills for a meal along the water.
