Milwaukee County Parks..Tops in the country!


I bet you didn’t realize that Milwaukee has some of the best parks in the country. Or maybe you did.   In fact, our very own Milwaukee County Parks Department is one of 4 finalists for the Gold Medal Award in the Park and Recreation Management Program! The award is based on excellence in long-term planning, resource management and a few other criteria.  There’s always something going on in the parks.  It seems like in the summertime there’s free music happening in almost every park throughout the city.  If you’re ever looking to hear some tunes, check out the Summer’s Best Concert Series.

I’ve always been a huge fan of the Milwaukee County Parks.  I think my favorite would have to be Lake Park.  What are some of your favorite parks?  Recognize the photo below?
