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: 301 Park St., Menasha, WI
Size: 23.9 Acres
Description: Filled with diverse attractions, Smith Park is a landmark in Menasha that has been around since 1897. Fun fact: this makes it one of the oldest city parks in the state! Visit the railroad caboose, learn about burial mounds, or see a concert in the amphitheater. Weddings are often held in the gardens, and there are all kinds of shows in the gazebo. Playground, volleyball courts, tennis courts, softball diamond and soccer field are all open for public use. Access to the Fox River is located on the north end of the park.
