Trestle Park in Milwaukee

|One really cool thing about the park, the design incorporates the former railroad crossing signals in it's design!|

Overall, I think it is a great gem for the neighborhood, although not something that is going to attract people outside Milwaukee.
|Except for the occasional abandoned railroad photographer.|
That being said, there are a couple proposals that would have the City of Milwaukee purchase the trestle and potentially expand Trestle Park onto the west side of the river, so I might be back here in a few years if that ever materializes.
As always, thanks for reading!
