The History of Your Milwaukee County Parks


The Milwaukee County Department of Parks, Recreation and Culture celebrated its 106th anniversary in 2013. The system has a rich history, and was largely built during and immediately following the Great Depression. The park system's founding fathers were visionary in the creation of our Emerald Necklace. Explore how the system was formed and how it has evolved over the years to the world-class system it is today. Learn about the horticulture throughout the system and the current impact of invasive species.

Dates and locations to be announced.
