This city, located along the Fox River, is rich in history. Once the highway for French fur traders, Jesuit missionaries and a number of Indian tribes, the river later became a major waterway for residents, businesses and visitors. Today the river offers recreation and family fun in each of the four seasons.
Riverside Park boasts a boat launch and fishing piers, a campground along its shores, and a frisbee golf course among other things, in its 38 acres. It is one of eight parks within the city boundaries, which includes three along the river. In winter the river is part of the snowmobile trail through the area. Hiking, biking or cross-country skiing along the Mascoutin Trail takes you through part of Green Lake County. If golfing is your thing, the 27-hole Mascoutin Golf Course, home of the 2009 WI State Senior Open, is ready and waiting for you.
