Park & Beach Area
The Wind Point Lighthouse is a beautiful place to visit any time of year. The park grounds are open 365 days a year, between the hours of 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. The park has picnic tables, benches, outdoor restrooms (seasonally), a beach area and gardens, including a memorial brick garden maintained by the Racine/Kenosha Master Gardener Association. The beach area is open for swimming but lifeguards are not present so swimming is at your own risk. There is an outdoor foot washer just outside of the restrooms. The lighthouse grounds can be rented for weddings, parties, corporate events and more. For more information, click here.
