Milwaukeeans love their parks, and with nearly 15,000 acres of parkland throughout Milwaukee County, there is much to love. But few know the story behind the development of this great park system. Milwaukee County Parks takes readers on a photographic tour of the area’s earliest parks―town squares and beer gardens established by the early settlers―through the creation of city and county park commissions, to the parks today. It will leave one with a better appreciation of the vision and dedication it took to build such a park system and the need to assure it remains intact for the enjoyment and benefit of future generations.
