Menominee Park is one of Oshkosh’s largest parks and hosts a variety of events every year. The entire eastern side of the park is bordered by beautiful Lake Winnebago and is a prime spot to watch the sunrise.
There are excellent fishing and boating opportunities throughout the park along with numerous boat launches and ample parking in Miller’s Bay. You will find paved walking and biking trails throughout the park, a free zoo and beach, amusement rides, kayak and SUP rentals, and many other amenities.
The Zoo is approximately eight (8) acres and carries 30-50 animals during the season. The zoo entertains and educates over 100,000 visitors per year. Open seasonally, the majority of the zoo animals are leased, allowing a different variety each year. As the zoo continues to grow and improve, several major, permanent exhibits are planned. These exhibits will house native species that will reside at the zoo all year round. Four permanent exhibits are complete: the wolf, elk, otter and eagle exhibits.

Admission continues to be FREE due to a generous gift by Tom and Penny Harenburg.
