Who We Are

Downtown’s first public dog park at 103 W. Clybourn Avenue along the Milwaukee River off the I-794 exit ramp at Plankinton Avenue is being led by a non-profit partnership between Milwaukee Downtown, Business Improvement District #21 and Historic Third Ward, Business Improvement District #2

Established in 1998 and 1987 respectively, both organizations are instrumental in improving the quality of life for residents, workers, businesses, and visitors alike. Through our core services, marketing & economic development strategies,  and signature events, the organizations strive to lead and inspire believers in Milwaukee to engage in efforts, like the new dog park project, that build the greater Downtown as the thriving, sustainable, innovative, and vibrant heart of the community.
