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.
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.
Located in Watertown (small town between Madison & Milwaukee) An octagon shaped house completed in 1854 It has 57-rooms and my favorite a 40-foot spiral cantilever hanging staircase; Victorian-style furnishings throughout, On the grounds is the restored first kindergarten founded by Margarethe Meyer Schurz in 1856 and 100-year-old barn with early farm implements.
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)
