Welcome to the Park People!

The Park People believe that public parks enrich our lives and communities. Whether one is biking along a path, pushing a child in a swing, or merely cherishing a view, our daily lives benefit from our park experiences.  For over thirty years, The Park People of Milwaukee County, Inc. (TPP), a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, has educated and involved the public in decisions concerning our parks through our mission: Citizen Stewardship of Milwaukee County Parks.
