The recently opened Zilber Park is a functional, and useful shared feature of The Brewery project. This park might not strike many people as a park in the Milwaukee sense of the word, meaning it has lots of grass and trees, but this is a creatively designed urban park that respects its location, and creates an outdoor space ready for activation. This park has clearly been planned as a gathering place, will benches and tables to gather around, a small hill to sit with friends, and trees that when mature will provide some shade for park goers. The park utilizes granite rocks that make up the multi-purpose wall which visually screens the parking lot, and delineates the space. Crushed granite is used throughout the park as the walking surface, and a bronze statue of Joseph
and Vera Zilber
gives thanks to the Zilber family for creating this new urban neighborhood.
To see for yourself we’ve provided a photo gallery, but better yet stop at The Brewery and enjoy this new public space.
