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: 2926 Lost Dauphin Dr., DePere, WI 54115
Size: 19 acres
Description: Looking for a quick nature bath with gorgeous views and classic Wisconsin scenery? Take a walk around Lost Dauphin and enjoy the trails running through the rolling hills and stop to look out over the Fox River as it makes its way toward Green Bay. Rest on one of the benches located along the trails and immerse yourself in the solitude of the oaks and pines. Fun fact: the park was named for the historical claim that a lost French monarch, King Louis XVII, once called this land home!
