The Kenosha County Parks system offers more than 1,500 acres of managed recreational land at eight parks. Meanwhile, the City of Kenosha has 70 park and conservation sites — making up approximately 1,000 acres of land. Towns and villages throughout the county also have their own parks. When you add it all up, along with a state recreation area — that’s a whole lot of land for visitors to play on!
Three Kenosha County communities are designated Arbor Day Foundation’s “Tree City USA” communities: City of Kenosha, Bristol, and Paddock Lake.
The City of Kenosha and Kenosha County are certified as a “Bird City” by Bird City Wisconsin.
We are often asked: Can you grill in City of Kenosha parks?
The answer is yes. Grills must be 2 feet off the grass/ground. You must bring your own supplies and any charcoal must be disposed of in the properly labeled can - not trash cans. No grilling is allowed on city beaches.
We list here on our website a partial list of parks – primarily ones with amenities, programming, and/or events – located throughout Kenosha County.
