2/19/2020–Do you love Lake Park? Would you like to be part of preserving and enhancing it for generations to come? We are seeking self-nominations for positions on the volunteer Board of Directors. Board members serve two-year terms, with a three-term maximum.

A national treasure and local gem, Lake Park is an urban oasis that has been enjoyed by Milwaukeeans and visitors for more than a century. Designed by famed landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted in the romantic style of the great parks of Europe, it was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.

We work to preserve it. Established in 1996, Lake Park Friends is a non-profit, volunteer organization whose mission is to advocate for the preservation and enjoyment of Lake Park. We sponsor educational, recreational and cultural events in the park, and raise funds for the restoration and enhancement of the park in the spirit of Olmsted.

Do you have time, talent or treasure to contribute to this mission? Consider helping to preserve and enhance Lake Park through service on the board.

What’s the next step? Send a resume or summary of your background, along with a brief narrative about how Lake Park has influenced or impacted you or your family to Ann Wollmer at [email protected] or Lake Park Friends, P.O. Box 71197, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53211.
