Rally for Safe Streets
(& Neighborhood Cleanup)

In keeping with our mission "To Bring Neighbors and Neighborhoods Together" we are joining with other neighborhood partners to support this event. [Link to event flier]. It is also International Walk and Bike to School Day. So we'll spend half the time cleaning the neighborhood and then rally together to bring our message to drivers to slow down for safe streets.
Connector Trail, Opening Celebration
Date: To Be Announced
A new trail has just been completed in Lincoln Park. We joined forces with Friends of Estabrook Park, Cream City Conservation, River Revitalization Foundation and Milwaukee County Parks staff to build a beautiful hiking trail that connects the two Parks. We got permission to take the trail under three roadways, under Port Washington Rd, I-43 and the Hampton Ave on-ramp, The trail continues along the Milwaukee River and emerges from the woods next to the Hampton Avenue bridge across the river from the Blatz Pavilion. Here is a blog article describing the trail and it's creation. In true Friends of Lincoln Park fashion, we are planning a Celebration in late October. Stay tuned for more information.
