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, fishing from the shore, and much more to enjoy year-round.  

Children enjoy the free 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. There's also a nearby playground.

The 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.  Every two years, the current sculptures are removed and the new sculptures are installed. A majority of the exhibit is along the HarborPark promenade. New sculptures are being installed in early September 2019.

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.
