Some of Milwaukee’s best kept secrets are right in our backyard, and this place is no exception. Tucked away on 60th and State is a little known nature preserve. Not only does this slice of greenery offer a getaway from ordinary city living, it serves as an outdoor education center for Milwaukee Public Schools. This natural oasis is absolutely beautiful, breathtaking, and worth a visit.
