10,000 Steps Route: Lincoln Park

The City of Kenosha has dozens of parks that dot our landscape, but undoubtedly one of the crown jewels of the parks system is Lincoln Park. Known for softball tournaments, its tranquil flower garden, the summertime concert series Lincoln Park Live, and more recently a full 18-hole disc golf course, Lincoln Park is a popular spot to stretch your legs and enjoy a sunny day.

There’s no better way to start your 10,000 steps mission than with a round of disc golf. Lincoln Park’s course starts off near The Oribiletti Center on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive where restrooms can also be found. There is convenient, free parking on either side of this road just west of 18th Avenue. After you hurl your first disc, proceed southwest, past the flower garden, paralleling MLK Drive to find the second and third holes. For holes 4 through 8 you’ll need to cross a footbridge over a small creek which connects to Lincoln Lagoon.

Hole 9 will have you throwing back across the creek heading south, but there is a dry path closer to the sidewalk along 22nd Avenue as well. For the back 9, you’ll tee off near 22nd Avenue and MLK Drive and start heading back east between the creek and flower garden.

Hole 12 is perhaps the signature hole of the course, the infamous Lagoon hole. It’s 320 feet from tee to basket straight across Lincoln Lagoon though only about 235 of that is actually water. Cross over the big bridge to the west side of the water to continue on with holes 13 through 17 taking you around the north end of the lagoon. Hole 18 ends right where you started your journey, which means it will be easy to launch straight into your 2nd round. Hey, 10,000 is a lot of steps!

Distance: 3.2 Miles (2 rounds)

Complete your steps: Grab some buddies for a game of basketball on the nearby courts. There are also tennis courts if that’s more your speed. You’ll reach 10,000 in no time!
