Hike This: Fish Creek Park

Although tens of thousands of people head to Peninsula State Park each year to hike its many trails, far fewer ever notice the park that sits across from the state park’s entrance. Fish Creek Park offers 27 wooded acres, the small creek that gives the village its name and two trail loops: the Butterfly Loop and the Peninsula Players Trail, which was the site of the original Peninsula Players Theatre. These are perfect for a stroll with little difficulty.
