• Welcome to Juneau Park

    Juneau Park is a historical green space that transitions the urban skyline of Milwaukee to the expansive beaches of Lake Michigan.

    In 2009, Juneau Park Friends was established as a non-profit with a mission to promote the preservation and renewal of Juneau Park.

    With your help and the help of the Milwaukee County Parks System, we plan to make the park a favorite destination for those who live and work in the neighborhood.

    THE HONORABLE SOLOMON JUNEAU

    Milwaukee’s first mayor will always have his place in history, right here in Juneau Park. Residents and visitors have passed his way since 1872. He continues his watch over them today as they bike on the Oak Leaf Trail, take a scenic walk with their dog or play Frisbee with a friend.

    For his dedicated service, Juneau Park Friends plans to add a circular path, landscaping and benches to honor the mayor and create a spectacular overlook.

    AT THE NEW TERRACE

    Juneau Park has long been a place to seek peace and solitude. But sometimes you want to socialize and bask in the activity, not just the sun. And sometimes getting away from it all doesn’t mean you want to be alone.

    The plans for the park’s renewal include a beautiful terrace with tables and chairs where friends and family can meet.

    AT THE CHILDREN’S PLAY AREA

    For watching the fireworks on the Fourth of July, flying a kite for the first time, strolling with the baby on a Sunday afternoon or any one of your favorite family activities, Juneau Park has always been the place.

    In the future, Juneau Park will be even more family friendly—with new picnic tables and a designated children’s play area.

    UNDER THE NEW TREES

    Juneau Park is a fresh change of pace from the busy downtown lifestyle that Milwaukee residents live day to day. It has provided an oasis of trees and plants from busy streets and high-rise buildings since its creation.

    Juneau Park Friends will plant new ornamental trees and shrubs to bring more color and shade for visitors to enjoy.
