Even if you're not into beach volleyball -- and many a young person who comes here is -- this is a great, free, friendly beach for families and couples of all ages. The beach is generally very clean; there are changing rooms, a bubbler and...More

It’s pretty, but the parking is hard to come by, the water is sketch and in the evenings I’d be cautious.

Sun, Sand, and Water with volley ball nets and a bar. An urban jewel in Milwaukee. Pliantly of parking, miles of walking and biking trails with interesting vistas.

Spent an afternoon with my 11 year old daughter. We both had fun despite not getting in the freezing water because there were such a variety of people to watch. Just hung out, shared ice cream and watched a pickup volley ball game on one...More

It is a clean place, excellent option to practice sports or to walk. During the summer is not easy to find a place to parking and during the winter the water is really cold but, doesn't matter, it is a nice place to visit.

Beautiful beach that was very clean! We did not experience the water as to the fact it was not warm enough yet. Lots of open beacb area, volleyball courts, and tiki bars. Totally recommend!

Bradford Beach is always good for a nice stroll. It has something to look at all year round, and it is a nice few hours to relax and people watch.

We were here on a hot September morning waiting for our lunch spot to open. The beach was clean and not particularly crowded. The water was pretty cold so we didn't do any swimming but it was nice to cool your feet.

We enjoyed a visit to this beach. It's very near the North Point lighthouse. This isn't the prettiest beach we've ever seen, but it's a nice quiet spot to walk and enjoy.

You can picnic so long as you don't bring glass. Parking is free and off street. It stretches down the length of the lake. As far as pool floats, not sure those are a good idea. This water is typically too cold to swim in... More

Dogs are allowed, but on the north end only, really. And they do need to be leashed.
