4 Welcome... Don't let freezing temperatures, snow and ice keep you from enjoying February. Milwaukee County offers countless fun, family-friendly opportunities, regardless of winter weather. Enjoy snowman- building, sledding or tobogganing at one of our award-winning parks, or ice skate at Red Arrow Park. More relaxing options include a stroll through Cathedral Square. Indoors, visit the Mitchell Park Conservatory (the Domes) or art galleries in the Historic Third Ward, enjoy a concert at the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts or take in a play at one of our great theaters. No matter what you chose to do, I hope you enjoy your time with us. Chris Abele, Milwaukee County Executive Something remarkable is occurring in the center of Milwaukee. Activity, excitement, and noteworthy changes are taking place at a pace that is unprecedented in this city's modern history. Some of the change is obvious. Cranes loom above rising structures. Downtown buildings are sprucing up with colorful signs and artwork. The sidewalks are busier as more people are working, living, and enjoying a night out in downtown. Some change is less obvious as investors are buying real estate and city government is building and improving our infrastructure. And there are strong signs that the trend of more investment and more activity will continue. Northwestern Mutual is not just building two new skyscrapers; they are adding employees and constructing apartments. The Milwaukee Bucks are not just building a new arena; they are planning an exciting new district that adds more retail and entertainment venues. I am optimistic about Milwaukee's future and the increasing opportunities for our residents and our visitors. Tom Barrett, Mayor Explore Veterans Park
