Since 2011, we have been actively engaged with Milwaukee County Parks to make improvements in Doctors Park to preserve Dr. Schneider’s gift to all of us.
What We've Achieved
Restoring and improving the trails, stairways, railings and picnic areas
New way-finding signage, picnic tables and park benches
Tree planting and native plant protection and restoration
Dog refuse bags and disposal containers
Park and Beach clean-up and weed-out days 3-4 times per year
Planted mixed species of trees in an underused picnic area top of the service drive to support birds and wildlife
Initiated discussion and supported Milwaukee County Parks’ decision to replace the restroom pavilion
Removed exterior shower walls around the Beach House and maintain the structure until it can be renovated.
