Welcome To The Neighborhood
Just fifteen miles from downtown Milwaukee, Brookfield offers the best of both worlds: quiet, suburban living while still near the amenities of the big city. Brookfield is also a shopping haven with over 25 shopping centres to choose from and a variety of restaurants ranging from fine-dining to family friendly and everything in between.
With academically-acclaimed public and private schools, a thriving business community, and an abundance of recreational activities: golf courses, football, soccer, tennis, the list goes on, including off-road bike paths, climbing walls, and skate parks for the more adventurous, Brookfield is an ideal place to live, work, and raise a family.
What You Will Love
Whether you are out shopping for fresh local produce, a tasty meal, or unique crafts by local artists, Brookfield’s Farmer’s Market is a Saturday morning must. Be sure to bring your furry family members and enjoy the live music and ample seating.
Located in over 200 wooded acres, The Milwaukee County Zoo contains over 2,000 mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians and is open 365 days a year. With a miniature train around the perimeter, a zip line, and a gondola ride with a bird’s eye view of the facility, there is no question why it’s considered one of the country’s top zoos.
Get all your shopping done in one place at The Brookfield Square Mall. With over 125 stores, there is something for every member of the family. Be sure to try one of the great restaurants or head over to the food court to grab a snack while you warm up by the fireplace.
