Paid Parking in Our Parks

Paying to park in a Park

As the saying goes, desperate times call for desperate measures, but this presents what many consider a paradigm change for our parks system.  Imagine having to pay to park each time you go to a dog park, play golf, take your children swimming, play a game of tennis or soccer or baseball, take your kids to a tot lot, attend a picnic, enjoy a beer garden, or simply sit and observe nature.  These are only some of the occasions when you would be required to pay a fee to park your vehicle in one of Milwaukee County's beautiful parks.
