Franklin Wirth Park, centrally located in Brookfield is considered by many residents as “my most favorite place to be” in the city. The 135-acre park was acquired in 1961 and named after the first and longtime Mayor of the City. Wirth Park is a fully developed community park with a community-wide service area providing a variety of natural resources and non-resource-oriented facilities and is the premier park for the City of Brookfield offering residents a diverse array of active and passive outdoor recreational opportunities. The park facilities are utilized by the community daily with well over 100,000 visits annually.
