Milwaukee River

These 11 small islands provide plenty of land for a day of paddling, bird watching, fishing or picnicking.  Five of these islands are adjacent to other public parks:  Fireman's Park, Ndwburg; Ehler's County Park, Saukville; Lime Kiln Park, Grafton; and Estabrook County Park, Milwaukee.  The BLM is aggressively controlling invasive species including: buckthorn, honeysuckle, garlic mustard, dame's rocket, and other non-natives, creating conditions for the restoration of native plant communities.  These islands are beautiful places to stop for a respite during your day on the river.
