Commute home just in time to enjoy a sunset stroll at one of the many area parks. Wirth Park offers a serene setting with a public pool, playground, game fieldsand walking trails. Fox Brook Park boasts pavedtrails as well as a former quarry for swimming. Brookfield also has many neighborhood parks, such as Endicott Park, which is perfect for ice skating in winter, tennis, as well as picnics and strolls with your pup during the other three seasons of the year. One of Brookfield’s most beloved assets is the Greenway Trail System, allowing bikers, runners and walkers to safely navigate all over the city on beautifully paved trails.

Parkside Twenty Three is a locally owned, artisanal eatery that brings fresh produce from its own 10,000 square foot garden next door, as well as meat, cheese and more from a fine selection of Wisconsin farms straight to your table. You could even organize a garden-side dining event with your friends and family.  Delight in offerings like their hot honey chicken sandwich and berry salad. Or, head to Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurant for delicious pours and filet mignon. Wine tasting is a highlight, but their beautiful dining room and tasty meals make this an extremely popular spot for a special meal. And if you love the wine, why not join their wine club!  You won’t want to miss Jake’s restaurant,which has been in Brookfield since 1960, featuring steaks and seafood along with their signature haystack onion rings in a true classic American steakhouse setting.
