Lakeshore Park

The City of Oshkosh Lakeshore Park property is approximately 70 acres and is a large portion of the former Lakeshore Municipal Golf Course. In January 2018, the City sold approximately 32 acres of the former golf course property to Oshkosh Corporation for construction of their global headquarters. The Lakeshore Park property surrounds the Oshkosh Corporation site. The Oshkosh Common Council has directed staff to develop the remainder of the Lakeshore site as a park. The park property has floodplains, wetland pockets and archeologically-sensitive areas. The City is currently developing plans for a trail connection on the northern border of the site connecting the Tribal Heritage Trail to Rainbow Memorial Park. The trail connection is scheduled to be completed October 2019.

The Oshkosh Parks Department, Advisory Park Board, and Consulting Firm SmithGroup is asking for the public's help in designing the future Lakeshore Park. Find public input opportunities, public meetings, and more on this webpage.
