Milwaukee County without its public parks, beaches, golf courses and trails seems unthinkable right? They're what makes Milwaukee, Milwaukee. But, without urgent action, our parks and trails face an uncertain future.
Parks are deemed ‘non-essential’ by the Wisconsin State legislature, so they’re often bottom of the list when it comes to funding support, and the shrinking funding Milwaukee County receives from the state is putting our parks in peril.
Unless something changes, by 2027 Milwaukee County will not have any local dollars for local priorities, including parks.
Milwaukee County Parks are amazing spaces & we know that when we ensure our parks thrive, we thrive too. So we've created this site to share resources on how you can help.
