Walk & Roll at Three Bridges Park
October 15, 2022 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Earth Justice Ministry’s monthly nature Walk and Roll is Saturday, October 15, cohosted by Bruce Wiggins and Barbara Leigh. Walkers and people assisted with wheels (wheelchair, segway, unicycle, etc.) are welcome!
We’ll meet at 10:00 a.m. at the Urban Ecology Center Menomonee Valley, 3700 W Pierce St, Milwaukee, and then explore a 24-acre urban oasis with paved trails winding around rolling hills. We will be near the American Family Field and along the Hank Aaron bike trail which is integrated into the park. All ages and abilities welcome! We plan about an hour, but you can spend longer if you wish.
Three Bridges Park was once part of a wild rice marsh, then it became a rail yard. It lay vacant for decades, then was replanted and revitalized through a redevelopment effort by the city and private sector partners. The Park opened in 2013 and includes two miles of biking and walking trails, river access for fishing and canoeing, and three new biking/pedestrian bridges. It is located along the Menomonee River between 27th and 37th Streets.
