With a rich past and a bright future the Village of West Milwaukee is the best kept secret in Milwaukee County.




The Village of West Milwaukee is a small, close knit suburban community located in the middle of Milwaukee County. The City of Milwaukee, the City of West Allis and the Zablocki Veteran’s Administration Medical Center border West Milwaukee.  We are in close proximity to many cultural and athletic ventures. The Miller Park Baseball Complex, home of the Milwaukee Brewers, is within walking distance. Downtown Milwaukee, the Bradley Center, the lakefront and Summerfest Grounds are just minutes away to the east via I-94. Traveling west are Wisconsin State Fair, the Pettit Ice Center and the Milwaukee County Zoo.


Please be aware that all sidewalks should be free of snow and ice. Sec 14-429 (8)
