Winter Wonder Woods

 Winter Wonder Woods

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2024 Winter Wonder Woods event!

Celebrate winter in style with Milwaukee Recreation's Winter Wonder Woods! Join us to safely experience seasonal serenity in the city while creating lasting memories and new traditions.

See Hawthorn Glen in a new light as you stroll through our trails that are twinkling with holiday cheer. Tens of thousands of lights will illuminate the beauty of the Glen, winding you through the woods and past displays. Winter Wonder Woods will feature a selfie station, hiking Santa, educational facts along the trail, and more!

Take a look at the Winter Wonder Woods experience with these highlights from last year's event!
