Milwaukee's Built Environment

cultural and historic sites

013 — Third Ward RiverWalk Extension
Section of Riverwalk designed by artist Mary Miss. To be completed in 2000, this $10 million project combines site specific sculpture and bioremediation. Milwaukee River shoreline between Clybourn and Erie Streets. Call 414-276-7889.

008 — Greendale Originals
A model "greenbelt" community developed by the Federal government and dedicated by Eleanor Roosevelt in 1938. Like similar communities in Greenbelt, MD and Greenhills, OH, the 366 original Greendale structures are small, one-bedroom homes built of concrete. They are now individually- owned. Intended to provide a pleasing respite from urban congestion and stimulate community life, the plan for Greendale includes walking paths through shared "backyard" greenspaces, abundant trees, a non-gridded streetscape, and proximity to library, grocery and post office. Greendale is a good example of thoughtful, environmentally integrated urban planning. South of W. Grange Avenue, west of Loomis Road, and east of S. 76th Street.

009 — Kilbourn Reservoir Park
Early reservoir for use in Milwaukee. Built in 1873, still in use but covered in 1979. E. Reservoir and E. North Ave.
