Tourism & Recreation:

  • Delavan Lake
The Delavan and Delavan Lake area is one of the most popular resort locations in Wisconsin with exciting water sports, golf, horseback riding, and winter activities. The city’s park system contains more than 100 acres of natural preserves, parks, picnic areas, and playgrounds. Included in Delavan’s beautiful park system can be found a swimming pond, sledding hills and a Memorial Arboretum.
Over two miles of winding waterways are within the city; Lake Comus is a favorite spot for children. Along the north shore of Lake Comus, beyond the arboretum, is the Dibble Nature Trail where many varieties of trees, shrubs, marsh grass, birds and small animal wildlife can be observed in their natural habitat.
The new Rotary Gardens on the east end of the city highlights a seven-rock fountain representing the seven continents. The city owns and operates the 27-hole Delbrook Golf Course rated as one of the finest public courses in the area. It includes a man-made lake, a modern irrigation system, and modern clubhouse. A golf pro is available to help with all your golfing needs.
