Village Park Project

In 2020, Village Park (located at the intersection of Appleton Avenue and Garfield Drive in downtown Menomonee Falls) was redeveloped as a community destination. This project included a new plaza space for outdoor markets/events, a performance amphitheater, a restroom building with a covered gathering area, inviting landscape features, and access improvements. Additional amenities are planned for a future phase of construction.

This project fulfills the vision adopted in the 2018 Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan Update to create a downtown park space that will accommodate a broad range of community events and programming. This project also supports the Village’s vision for a thriving and revitalized downtown as stated in the 2015 Comprehensive Plan Update.
