WAUKESHA COUNTY — Get out and enjoy the fall weather in Waukesha County. Starting Monday, Nov. 22 and going through Nov. 28, all the fee-based parks in the Waukesha County Park System will be free.

The goal is to get families outside and enjoying the natural beauty of Waukesha County during Thanksgiving week.

Those parks include:

  • Fox Brook Park, 2925 N. Barker Road, Brookfield, WI 53045
  • Fox River Park, W264 S4500 River Road, Waukesha, WI 53189
  • Menomonee Park, W220 N7884 Town Line Road, Menomonee Falls, WI 53051
  • Minooka Park, 1927 E. Sunset Drive, Waukesha, WI 53186
  • Mukwonago Park, S100W31900 County Hwy LO, Mukwonago, WI 53149
  • Muskego Park, S83 W20370 Janesville Road, Muskego, WI 53150

  • Ryan Park, W262 N4656 Ryan Road, Pewaukee, WI 53072

“It was a great year in the parks and we’d like to invite residents and visitors to experience these amazing green spaces for free,” said Waukesha County Executive Paul Farrow. “It’s a great way to see what each park has to offer before purchasing your 2022 park entrance stickers.”

During that week, the park officials will be transitioning the areas with automatic license plate readers and online payment systems.

Annual park admission stickers will go on sale Nov. 26.
