3 ways to find family-friendly adventures in Marshfield

Headed to central Wisconsin with the family in tow? You’re in luck—Marshfield is home to outstanding outdoor adventures, can’t-miss attractions, fun community events, and other great ways to entertain the whole crew. Here’s a closer look at what to see and do.

Get outside

One of Marshfield’s top family attractions is Wildwood Park & Zoo, which has been welcoming visitors since the 1930s and is home to twin Kodiak bears, cougars, bison, wolves, and a menagerie of other animals. (The park is also home to some great wooded walking trails.) The outdoor Wenzel Family Plaza hosts fun events like concerts (see below), but it’s also a great place to go and play in the splash pad in the summer. And while we’re talking about summer fun, Vandehey Waters Outdoor Aquatic Center is a great place to spend a sunny day, as it’s home to multiple waterslides, diving boards, a climbing wall, a current channel, and a lap pool.

Find fun indoors

There’s plenty to see and do inside on your trip to Marshfield, too. Melody Gardens Restaurant & Skateland not only serves delicious food—and ice cream—but it is also home to a skating rink and arcade. The Grey Dog Axe Throwing is open to kids ages 8 and up (kids 8-13 must be accompanied by a parent) and has arcade games and a pool table on site. Escape Room Marshfield is a fun family activity designed for two to eight players, and Board & Brush Marshfield lets you and your kids explore your creative sides with engaging art projects.

Mark your calendar

Wenzel Family Plaza hosts the Hub City Concert Series on Friday nights throughout the summer, and this year’s calendar includes acts like Newski and The Verve Pipe. Every July, Hub City Days brings the celebration to historic downtown Marshfield with a classic car & bike show, kids’ games, live music, and more. In September, the fun continues at Maple Fall Fest, which welcomes more than 150 arts & crafts vendors, kids’ games, art activities, and much more to Wildwood Park.
