How to Initiate a Project With Milwaukee County Parks

Thank you for your interest in improving Milwaukee County Parks! We have a few avenues to make it easy for you to make a project request and understand our most common request processes. Use the forms below to submit a project request. Most requests are reviewed twice a year, so anticipate submitting your request several months in advance of your desired schedule.

Park Improvements

Park improvements are a common type of request. They involve anything from building a kiosk for a scouting project, to renovating a roof, to constructing a new facility on a park site. Be it large or small, should you have a project improvement request, you will need to complete this form.

Spring Review Deadline: March 10, 2019 

Fall Review Deadline: Aug. 10, 2019

Park Improvement Project Form

Some park improvement projects may qualify for a sPark matching fund grant. sPark applications are reviewed on the same timeline as Park Improvement projects.

Land Utilization

Land utilization requests often come in the form of a need for an easement for utilities or memorandum of understanding (MOU) in a specific park location for a specific purpose. Requests to access a portion of a park site most commonly come from our utility partners in the energy, water management and conservation sectors. If you are looking to use park land for an extended period of time, you will need to complete this form.

Land Donations

Land donations generally support a long-term parks objective like making a connection between park sites, preserving a natural area or expanding access to an underserved area. While we are not currently working to dramatically expand our footprint, occasionally an opportunity surfaces that we can’t refuse. If you are interested in donating a parcel of land to the Milwaukee County Parks system, you will need to complete this form.
