Free Things To Do in Whitewater

Updated: Aug 22, 2019

Whitewater is a great community to live in! Make it feel more like home with these fun, free activities. They are perfect for the whole family, so go out there and make some memories!




Learn at the Whitewater Historical Society Museum

Located in the old train depot on Whitewater St, the museum holds tons of treasures from Whitewater’s history. They have some amazing artifacts and pictures on display that will give you a glimpse into what life was like here long ago.



Picnic in the park

Pack up some sandwiches and bring a blanket to one of Whitewater’s many great parks for a relaxing picnic. Take the kids to play at Starin Park or bird watch at Cravath Lakefront Park or Trippe Lake Park. This is one of my absolute favorite things to do and has really made Whitewater feel like home for me. At least once a week I pack a snack and head to Cravath Lakefront Park to sit in the shade and read a book. It’s a great place to relax and spend some time unplugged!



Visit Irvin L Young Memorial Library

The library has so much to offer! Get your free library card and check out some books to take home for hours of free fun, or attend one of their many free events and programs. Check their website to see what they have running currently.



Take a walking tour of the historical landmarks in town

Stop by the Chamber of Commerce at 150 W Main St and pick up a Historical Landmarks brochure and spend an afternoon visiting some of the locations on the list.
