HarborPark - a neighborhood - is the epicenter of Kenosha’s beautifully redeveloped Lake Michigan shoreline, encompassing 69 acres and offering an abundance of public activities.  Celebration Place at HarborPark’s eastern edge is home to many festivals and events during the summer months and you’ll also find a lakeside promenade, a vintage streetcar line, unique attractions, and much more to enjoy year-round. 

Children enjoy the splash pad area, located south of 56th Street. Visitors to it may park in the Southport Marina parking lot, at 57th Street and Third Avenue. Its season follows the city pool season: mid June - mid August. Contact the City parks department with questions: 262-653-4080.

The Kenosha Sculpture Walk runs along the harbor and features a dozen inspiring works of art for all to enjoy. The Kenosha Community Foundation Arts Fund coordinates the Sculpture Walk—HarborPark. The sculptures are fully funded through private donations. The 2017-19 exhibit was installed September 2017.

This is the fourth installation of sculptures since the biennial outdoor art exhibit was launched in September 2011. Every two years, the current sculptures are removed and the new sculptures are installed. A majority of the exhibit is along the HarborPark promenade, but also includes one near North Pier Lighthouse (5001 Fourth Ave.), one outside of the Kenosha Area Convention and Visitors’ Bureau (812 56th St.), and one at Civic Center Park (5600 Sheridan Road).     

The sculptures are:

  • “Strumming My Life Away,” Paul Bobrowitz, Colgate, WI, sponsor: ULINE.
  • “Window,” Bobrowitz, sponsor: Patricia Petretti.
  • “Nautilus,” Suzanne Horwitz, Highland Park, IL., sponsor: Kenosha Area Convention and Visitors Bureau.
  • “Portcullis,” August Kochanowski, Junction City, WI, sponsor: Snap-On Inc.
  • “Windswept,” Gary Kulak, Birmingham, WI, sponsor: The Arts Fund.
  • “The Struggle Against Death,” Ron Gard, Chicago, IL, sponsor: Anonymous.
  • “Night In Tunisia,” Gard, sponsor: Abatron.
  • “Wending,” Ted “Sitting Crow” Garner, Chicago, IL, sponsor: Friends of the Arts Fund.
  • “Connected,” Maureen Gray, Interlochen, MI, sponsor: The Kenosha Community Foundation.
  • “To Be Held,” Bruce Niemi, Kenosha, WI, sponsor: Mary Tunkieicz.
  • “Spatial Harmony Series,” Niemi, sponsor: Dr. Clifton and Gladys Peterson.
  • “Teetering on the Brink,” Martin Antaramian.

The pieces join David Floyd’s sculpture “Millennium Gate,” the “S.S. Kenosha” by Dan Blue, and a bronze Christopher Columbus fountain, which welcomes guests to Celebration Place. Sculpted by former Kenosha resident Michael Martino, the fountain symbolizes the connection between Kenosha and one of its sister cities, Cosenza, Italy.

Additional public art pieces can be found throughout HarborPark, including Place de Douai, located just south of the Kenosha Public Museum on 56th Street & 2nd Avenue.  Place de Douai showcases the Wallace Fountain, donated by the citizens of Douai, France, another sister city of Kenosha. The Kiwanis Club of Kenosha donated a towering clock that also stands in Place de Douai.
