Get to know life in Greendale, Wisconsin

Just 8 miles from the City of Milwaukee is the Village of Greendale, known for its rolling parks and small town feel.   The type of place where it’s common to see groups of children riding bikes to the Malt Shop, or a quick morning trip to the Open Market which ends in smiles, hearty laughs and a lingering cup of coffee with neighbors. Park concerts are a common phenomenon, local football games are generously attended, and borrowing a cup of sugar is encouraged.

As one of the original Greenbelt towns built in the 1930’s, Greendale was intentionally planned to replicate an English Garden Community and to have a quality of life unsurpassed for its residents. The Village Center is the heartbeat and boasts its own shops, restaurants and village hall. The Wehr Nature Center is a simple drive down the street and an early evening stroll while Boerner Botanical Garden in bloom is something not to be missed. On the Fourth of July, the village is the place to be- with its polka bands, vintage cars and town parade that draws visitors from all over the Metro Milwaukee area. Biking is easy through the miles of Whitnall Park and hardly ever without a sighting of some wonder of nature that that leaves you breathless.

With a first class school system, affordable housing, quality of life and just minutes from anywhere you want to be, it’s not surprising that Greendale is becoming a popular and unequaled place to call home.

I have lived in Greendale for the last 16 years, having left Southern California for a more affordable and family friendly environment. I’ll never forget the wonderful surprises that welcomed me to Greendale, the friendly waves and the genuine interest. I have forged lifetime friendships and can’t think of a better place to hang my hat.
