Ghostly Gathering

We're having a Halloween party, and you're invited! Join us as we celebrate our final Firefly Friday Night with a Ghostly Gathering at The Landing from 6 to 9 p.m. Oct. 27. Festivities include live music and a costume contest, as well as treats for ghouls and goblins of all ages.

Weed-Out: Buckthorn Removal

Join us to help eradicate this invasive species from the park, part of an effort led by The Park People of Milwaukee County, Inc. The Weed-Out is a rewarding day of volunteering. We have been working for several years to control the spread of buckthorn in order to restore native species to Hoyt Park with the help of our hard-working volunteers. The date of the Weed-Out will be added later this year.

Winter Wonderland

Friends of Hoyt Park & Pool invite you to embrace the winter season and its beauty at our Winter Wonderland event. It will include winter-themed activities for children in the historic Grand Hall, as well as a winter woods walk through the surrounding park and landscaped pool area led by staff member and horticulturalist Michael Kreuser. The date of our next Winter Wonderland will be added by the end of the year.

River Cleanup at Hoyt Park

Every spring, Milwaukee Riverkeeper provides the bags, gloves, and free T-shirts, and you provide the hands and energy to pick up trash, litter and the interesting or bizarre pieces of garbage that find their way into our beautiful river system.
