Easy Walks and Paddles in Milwaukee offers readers a guide to transit- and wheel- accessible walks and paddles in the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Sisters Karen and Jen Lemke visited over fifty parks and other public spaces to field test these walks. Among multiple details that they reported, at each destination they noted safety concerns, trail surfaces, accessibility, bathroom access, benches, and whether dogs are allowed. They criss-crossed the city by bus, on bikes, paddled kayaks, and simply walked. They even ran into Milverine, a local celebrity and youtube sensation, who recommends exploring Milwaukee by foot.
Easy Walks and Paddles in Milwaukee is a continuation of the Easy Walks in…trail guide series that originated in Massachusetts. Author Marjorie Turner Hollman worked closely with the Lemke sisters to add yet another book to the Easy Walks series. She collaborated with the Lemke sisters to create this guide. It is designed to provide support for those with mobility issues, visual impairment, elders, and parents with young children. The guide specifically addresses how to access these outdoor treasures using public transportation. Almost every destination can to be found within the city limits of Milwaukee. The outdoors awaits.
