Kinnickinnic River Trail
Julie Lawrence at OnMilwaukee.com drew my attention to this excellent community development taking place along the Kinnickinnic River on the south side of urban Milwaukee, the Kinnickinnic River Trail. The trail is in the early stages of development and will have a southern terminus at the river and 6th Street (near its intersection with Cleveland St) and at Water St and 1st Street on the northern end.
The trail, while still in its infancy, will hopefully include a restoration of the river to a more natural state with the removal of the concrete channeling.
Groundwork Milwaukee has provided a PDF with all you could ever want to know about what was discussed in planning for the trail.
I’ll try to learn more over the next few days as to what the actual status of the trail is (it’s a little bit hard to figure out with the information online).
I took the map out of the PDF and put it online as a JPG image in case you wanted to see the proposed route.
