Cravath Lakefront Park

341 S Fremont St, Whitewater, WI 53190, USA

In the 1990's, the City of Whitewater opted to create an open space to encourage visitors to the downtown area. The park is home to Cravath Lakefront Community Center, which was designed to resemble the nearby historic Whitewater Passenger Train Depot.The same land that was used for a dump site, oil tank storage, candle factory, and other industrial purposes in now a lakefront hosting celebrations, concerts, and weddings. The park is home to events including Freeze Fest, 4th of July, and Pig in the Park. In 2008, the Whitewater Arts Alliance worked with the community to provided the Cravath Lakefront Arch. The arch depicts several historical elements of the Whitewater community. In 2009, Whitewater Street was enhanced and the park benefited. An additional 20 trees were planted in the park and decorative bumpouts were created to provide small picnic areas for visitors to enjoy the park.
