Recognized by WWTS as the 2013 project of the year, located just outside Downtown Milwaukee along the Menomonee River, the new 24-acre Three Bridges Park opened to the public in July 2013. After a decade of planning, project partners successfully transformed a former, long-abandoned rail yard into a park with two miles of trails, river access for fishing and canoeing, 24-acres of native vegetation, and three bike/pedestrian bridges.

Three Bridges Park will be cooperatively owned by the State and City and will become a part of the Hank Aaron State Trail. The Urban Ecology Center will program activities in the park, which also serves as the outdoor science classroom of their new Menomonee Valley branch.

The park completion caps a series of $26 million in interconnected projects to improve access to jobs, environmental education, outdoor recreation and neighborhood vitality. Partners in this effort include Wisconsin Departments of Natural Resources and Transportation, City of Milwaukee, Menomonee Valley Partners and the Urban Ecology Center.
