HarborPark is a neighborhood more than a park. It’s the epicenter of Kenosha’s beautifully redeveloped Lake Michigan shoreline, encompassing 69 acres and offering an abundance of public activities.
What did HarborPark used to be? In the 1900s, Kenosha was a factory town – with many different industries including auto manufacturing. In 1988, the lakeside plant of Chrysler (which used to be American Motors) closed. This land was redeveloped into HarborPark.
From HarborPark you can see two lighthouses across the harbor, as well as the Kenosha History Center. You can walk to Downtown Kenosha where there are numerous locally owned restaurants, shops, and entertainment venues. Along the harbor, you can walk, bike, rollerblade, and fish.
Stop and take in the beauty of Lake Michigan. The lake truly shapes our community as it draws people to its shore no matter what season it is. (Be sure to take photos!) In fact, one of Kenosha’s most attractive and popular features is Lake Michigan. Nearly 90 percent of Kenosha County’s shore is publicly accessible with beaches, parks, bike paths, marinas, and festival places. There are numerous on-the-water and on-the-land activities to enjoy at the lake.
