Bethesda Park has quite the infamous history as the showplace of the city when Waukesha was an internationally known spring water health resort. Located on the banks of the Fox River, the park has 21 acres of open space for pick-up football and soccer games, as well as a Picnic Shelter with 15 tables and electricity.

Another feature is the playground, which is host to two separate climbing structures; a smaller one for toddlers, and a larger one for older kids. The playground contains a flexible eco-rubber surface under the swings, slides, and climbing structures.

The park also features public bathrooms, and a special drinking fountain that includes a water bottle refill station, ADA certified fountain, and dog bowl at the bottom.

The park is also home to two notable historical items, the “reborn” Dunbar Oak and the remains of the Bethesda Spring House. More information is available here on our website.
