    Tivoli Island Park

    by AVG2319 Written Jun 16, 2008

    This is a small park we use to go feed the ducks here when we were little. Walk across the bridge and hike back in the woods next to the water. It is very pretty peaceful spot to visit. I can still hear the sound of the water-wonderful childhood memories.

    Riverside Park-Watertown, WI

    Ducks

    If in the Watertown area and you are looking for a good spot to let the kids or yourself stretch your legs-Watertown has a nice city park by the river:

    Around 30 acres of Tennis courts,baseball,volleyball, nice new playground,river, huge grassy area, and of course the Watertown duck families. Every spring you can see the mamma duck and her little ducklings. Be careful they like to cross the street too! This is where Riverfest (beg. of August) is held every year and there is also a Aquatic center here, which is relatively inexpensive to go to.

  • There's always the octagon...

    by Jotenhjem Written Oct 4, 2002

    There's always the octagon house and first kingdergarden, plus the new high school that looks like a prison. Number of very peacefull parks, and scenic areas. Downtown historic district sounds nice, but it looks lika a dump.
    Octagon house and first kingdergarden are excellent for the educational tourist, though hard to find. I don't really know where they are, except for somewhere off of Western Ave. (West side)
