101 Things to do in Milwaukee Parks is the name of my book about the green spaces in the Milwaukee area. It includes many of the things you've seen here on my blog, and is in an easy format to take with you anywhere- backpack, glovebox in the car, any place you plan to have fun!
Here's what they are saying about the book.
"101 Things" is a homemade project in almost every sense: self-published, and researched without official help from the Milwaukee County Parks department or the various friends groups that support the parks. That independent viewpoint is the source of the book's strength. Ali writes not only about the fabulous variety of Milwaukee County's parks, but also includes local parks, such as Cahill Park in her own community of Whitefish Bay, and other green spaces including Forest Home and Wood National cemeteries.

This was a fun book to research and write. There are actually many more things to do than 101, so many are combined in the pages. I hope YOU find something fun to do in Milwaukee Parks. To see a slide show of the parks and activities I've found, check out my Amazon author page which lists local events where you can find me. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your feedback. Maybe you know something about the parks I missed.
