6 Welcome... Summer is in full force in Milwaukee County this month. The county offers no shortage of opportunities to enjoy a beautiful day out! Head over to Whitnall Park, where you can visit our new craft beer garden or enjoy beautiful flower displays and our 1,000 acre arboretum at the Boerner Botanical Gardens. Or, play 18 holes on a sunny day at Currie Park Course, one of the most popular of our premier golf courses. To help you take advantage of all that Milwaukee County has to offer, KEY Milwaukee is a valuable resource for exploring the many activities available this month. Whether you are enjoying sunshine and flowers or working on your chip shot, I hope you enjoy your time in Milwaukee County. 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.
